Google’s New Local Search Shows In The Number One Spot 93% Of The Time
So What Does This Mean For Local Businesses?
It means there’s a great way to show up online on any type of device, be it PC, laptop, mobile or tablet, but only the businesses that know how to set up their pages right will benefit. Only the top 3 show at the top of page 1. So if you want your business to be seen when people are searching for the products and services you provide you need to be on Google’s “Google My Business” Platform and you need to optimise the page and follow Google’s best practices.
What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is a way local businesses can have their business website show up when someone is searching on Google for a local business product or service. It now shows just under the paid ads and above the organic listings for a lot of search terms with local intent.
