When does a search engine show a local result?
« on: 01-04-2016, 03:30:59 »
Typically, Google, Yahoo! and Bing will show a local result if a region name is in a keyword search, like 'London pet salons', and if it's clearly a locally-focused business. Some SEO expert’s points out that the search engines check your IP address as well. But the search engines won't say for sure.
Here you notice for the term “IT Consultant Reston Va”, that the maps and PPC (Pay per Click) dominate the first page. This can no longer be ignored and MUST be part of your online marketing strategy.

You are correct in the assertion that most people don't go past the first page. Perhaps 80% to 90% of search activity is limited to the first page only. And of the people who make it past page one, perhaps 80% to 90% of those people never make it past page two.

Search engine local results are displayed when you submit your website in various local seo platforms. They help to generate good traffic locally and rank your website in Google local.

Apply all these things to enhance your local results in search engine especially Google.
1. GOOGLE PLACES
This is also known as Google My Business. Google often puts a group of local results in the middle of a page of traditional search results. Google does this either by guessing your location based on your IP address or using the city you typed in (“dentist Chicago”). If you’re having trouble ranking organically, showing up in Google Places is a great way to sneak onto the first page of Google results.
2. WEBSITE RANKING
This is what you think of when you think of Google results. See the SEO Result above. Sometimes your website can show up in multiple places on a search engine results page -- Google Places and a traditional Google ranking (as you can see happening above)!
3. OTHER RANKINGS
There are a handful of other ways you can show up in a local search. If your photos and videos are optimized, they could be part of the search results. So could your profile on Yelp or a similar site. We want all of your assets -- website, photos, videos, social media, third-party directory listings -- to work in your favor to maximize your chances of customers finding you.  !-! !-!
GOOD LUCK :)
