We Put Your Business On The Map, Literally
Google says a third of all mobile searches are local. Every month there are more than 10 billion unique searches performed in the United States, and over 40% of those queries are local searches – these include city, state, or even neighborhood names in their searches – and Vab Media can help you make the most of this opportunity. Alocal search typically includes a location modifier on a keyword and is used by customers seeking a business or product in their area. Typical local search queries include not only information about “what” the site visitor is searching for (such as keywords, a business category, or the name of a consumer product) but also “where” information, such as a street address, city name, postal code, or geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude.
When these types of searches are performed, the search engines will often pull a geographic map of local business listings with important contact and directional information. Vab Media Digital Agency will optimize your local business listings for those geographically focused searches. “Near me” searches are becoming more and more popular because on-the-go searchers often want to find a business, store or office located as close as possible to their current location.
Business listing information can also be distributed via the traditional Yellow Pages, electronic Yellow Pages aggregators, and search engine optimization services. Some search engines will pick up on web pages that contain regular street addresses displayed in machine-readable text (rather than a picture of text, which is more difficult to interpret)” – Wikipedia Local search advertising specifically targets local consumers ready to buy a certain product or service. A higher percentage of these customers will purchase once they’ve found the locations where they can do business near them.
