Local businesses, either ‘brick and mortar’ or service businesses, do very well with Maps listings from Google, Yahoo!, and MSN. They are fast and easy to set up, free to create, show at the top of relevant search results and will drive local customers to your door. When someone performs a search, and there are businesses in the area that have a Maps listing relevant to the product or service they are searching for, the search engine will show a list of those businesses at the top of the search results. For instance, if you sell and service lawn equipment, every time a person in your neighborhood searches for ‘lawnmowers’, ‘lawn equipment’ or ‘mower repair’, your business will show in the Maps results. If your business has a website you can use your Maps listings to help drive traffic to it. Even if you don’t have a website the maps listing gives your business a web presence where local customers can find you.
Optimizing Maps Listings
Just like web pages, the higher your Maps listing shows in the Maps results, the more traffic you can expect to receive. Also, just like web pages, a maps page can be optimized to make it more relevant to specific search terms which will make it show closer to the top of the Maps results. There are a number of steps that need to be taken to optimize a Maps listing. Having a website that is linked to from the Maps listing will help, especially in competitive markets.
