Google Places Optimization

Google Places Optimization is A Key to Local SEO Success

If You’re Not Attracting Local Leads, They’re Going Straight to Your Competitors!

As recently as 2009, succeeding with local SEO could be as simple as claiming and verifying your Google Places listing. However, competition among local businesses has skyrocketed during the last few years.

The reason local search optimization has become so much more competitive is because studies have shown that 97% of consumers now use the Internet to find local suppliers.

Because of this increased competition, success requires a Top 7 Google Places ranking. These slots are so important that Google Places marketing experts have nicknamed them the “Magnificent 7.” Businesses who aren’t in one of these coveted sweet spots are out of luck!
