So what are local search engine business listings ?
Both Google and Bing supply free business listings on their respective search engines. The Bing version is called ‘Bing Places For Business’ and Google’s service is called ‘Google My Business’ but both are essentially free directory listings which display key information about your company including images, location, opening times, services available and customer reviews.
Google is the big daddy of search engines, with over 2 trillion searches per year. But did you know that 46% of all those searches are people looking for local information?
People who search for local businesses are in the buying phase, with 76% of people who conduct a local search go on to visit or contact that business within 24 hours. (Stats from Hubspot).
. So your business has a real chance to appear above national competitors when searched for by local people.
