Google+ Local - essential for all businesses


As I mentioned in an earlier blog, all companies should get themselves listed on Google Maps via Google Local. Because any Google search that has an area name in it, will also bring up a map with local businesses pinned to it. This is one of the easiest ways to get on to the first page for your local area.



Google have now incorporated Google Local in to their Google+ social networking site, Google+ is Google’s version of Facebook.

Google Local / Pages = Google+ Local.

What this means to you as a business owner is that it is increasing more important that you have a Google+ page for your business for Google+ Local to show via it’s map.

It also allows people to rate and leave reviews about you and your service. This is the way of the world now, for better or worse it is here to stay. I sadly believe people are far more likely to leave bad feed back if they feel a grievance against you, than happy customers are to leave good feedback. You need to encourage all of your customers to leave positive feed back using what ever form of social site they frequent.
