What is Google + Local?
Google is the largest search engine on the planet and becoming bigger and more influential every day. Therefore it is critical that your business website can be found online. Statistics show that 1 in 5 searches on Google today are locality based. For instance if you were looking for a motor mechanic you might type “motor mechanic Gold Coast” or “auto repairs Southport”
Google Plus Local or Google + Local was known as ‘Google Places‘ and prior to that as ‘Google Local’. It is an online listing of your business that is in addition to your website. Your Google Plus Local listing can be updated with all of your company information, photos and images, videos, services and your deals or coupons.
