Google Maps

Local Business DirectoryMillions of people search using Google Maps every day. 

One in five searches on Google are related to location, which is why using a listing on Google Maps should be a must for any business; especially those targeting local markets.

What is Google Maps?

If you have ever searched for products or services locally, then it is probable that you have already used Google Maps; but perhaps not realised it! If anyone is looking for companies in their local area, they cannot miss it because it is there right in front of them on page 1.

Google Maps now gives local businesses who advertise with them, pride of place right at the top of the results page together with a map to help them find you.

Try it yourself! Type into either Google or Google Maps a business type, then ‘in’, then your local area and see what happens.

Google Maps literally does put your business on the map! If your business targets a local market, Google Maps can help get your business known and found by those searching for them; before they find your rivals.  Google Maps will display your business details to anybody searching for your business type in your area.

Once you have submitted your business to Google Maps, when it appears in search results, it will also display you business address, contact details and a marker on the map showing your location.
