Local business listings and their optimization are an important part of any business’s online profile. Our local search optimization bundles center on the optimization for Google Places and Google + following Google’s recommendations and guidelines. This is because currently Google controls around 70% of the search market. We also focus on Bing and Yahoo who control approximately 23% combined, as well as several other websites. Whether you choose our optimization bundles or lessons, you should check and make sure your business is listed.
The most popular and recognized business listing occurs in Google (Google’s local business listings are called Google Places.) Because Google is the most widely used search engine, it’s important to ensure that your business is recognized first and foremost by Google. At Turn The Page Online Marketing we focus a lot of attention to our clients' positioning in Google Places.
Yahoo is one of the top three search engines on the web maintaining a combined 23% share with Bing. Yahoo Local Business Listings are a great way to promote your business to customers looking for information in Yahoo! Local. Yahoo Local Business Listings are used in our optimization bundles to target prospective customers looking for products or services locally.
As Bing grows with market share after combining with Yahoo, it is important for any business to have a presence where your customers are located. Microsoft has a system called Bing Local. Bing tends to capture a higher income demographic, therefore, we focus here when working for clients with big ticket items.
