Consumers have always been in the need for local businesses products and services. What has changed is their behavior and the tools they use to perform searches for local businesses products and services. The Internet including Search Engines and Local Directories have replaced traditional printed yellow pages. Smart phones and other mobile devices are also becoming increasingly a consumer’s source of information in the purchase of local products and services.

73% of all searches for local businesses products and services are conducted on the Internet compared to 23% for printed Yellow Page directories, 2% Directory Assistance and 1% for other printed Directories (Source - 15 Miles Local Search Study 2010).

How Does Local Search Work?

InteractiveWest manages your business listing utilizing a Local Search Distribution Network, that distributes your business information to more than 200 Local Directories, such as Google Places, Yahoo Local, Bing Local, SuperPages.com, YellowPages.com, YP.com, Dex Online, TripAdvisor, Facebook , Twitter, Yelp, Foursquare, MerchantCircle, Local.com, Matchpoint, Kudzu and TomTom navigation devices.

Your business information including Company Name, Address and Phone Numbers plus enhanced information including Website, Email, Hours of Operation, Business Category, Brands and Products & Services appears within the largest network of Local Search platform partners where 90% of US consumers search for local business products and services occur.

Why Is Local Search Visibility Important For Your Business?

What’s currently happening online is that many sites are battling the major search engines for emphasis on local businesses products and services. While Google is still dominant since rolling out Google Maps in 2004, the landscape has changed. In addition to Google Places, Bing Local and Yahoo Local, many new Local Directories have emerged like FourSquare, Yelp, Merchant Circle and others, giving consumers what they want, including reviews and feedback on local merchants and their products and services.

Improving your Local Search visibility makes it easier for potential customers to find your business. Your business will appear in Search Engine and Local Directory results for your local area. Marketing your business online locally is a cost-effective way to reach new customers. Your business listing in Local Directories often contains a link to your website that both visitors and search engines use to find your website and learn more about your business. This, in turn, helps improve your overall website ranking with major search engines.google-local-search-page
