Using Google+ Local
When Google announced that it would be merging Google Places and localized search, a majority of industry practitioners believed that this spelled the end of traditional SEO.
However, our years as a local SEO service has made us realize that local SEO techniques need to be used in conjunction with an optimized Google Place Page. While getting your business listed on as many local online directories as possible is important, Google Places is easily one of the most critical business directories on the internet.
Not only is it seamlessly integrated into Google’s own search engine, it is absolutely essential in making your local business known online.
Having an effective and optimized Google Place Page makes your business easier to find, access and visit for potential customers.
