Location Marketing with Google
When a local search or location-based search is made on Google, you want your Business to feature at the top of the page on a map. That way customers can see that your business is located close to them, and they can even get directions.
To get your Business ranking for location searches on Google and across the Google network, you need a Google Maps Listing. A Google Maps Listing gives you an enhanced first page ranking for your Business and should be an integral part of your Location Marketing strategy.
