Local Map Optimization - 70% of U.S. Households Use the Internet When Shopping Locally for your Services

What Are Local Map Search Results?

The ability to search maps for local businesses online has taken over Google, Yahoo, and Bing. With only 44% of small businesses having any online presence, this creates an opportunity for you to increase your market share dramatically.

Local maps optimization

 

Local Maps Search Results appear when search engines display “geo-targeted” information. In the example above, there is a Google search result for “Businesses in McKinney Texas”. As you can see, a map was at the top of the search results with 7 businesses being featured. From this map, users can visit the businesses website, get driving direction, or even read reviews from other users. Google, Yahoo, and Bing display these map references when they determine that the search term has local intent. These top 7 business listings are referred to as the 7-pack.
