85% of consumers use the internet to find local businesses.
If your business is not listed in online directories like Google, Bing or Yahoo!, you’re losing business to the competitors who are. More than 85% of consumers use the internet to find local businesses before they buy. With the rise of the mobile web, users expect to see businesses near to them when they search – without local SEO, you could be missing out on business from your core markets.
How visible are you to your local clients?
With local SEO, you can boost your rank in map searches and bring new customers into your doors. Google’s recent algorithm updates have made local SEO even more important, focusing on where a business is in relationship to the searcher. Local SEO is important for any business that operates in a local community or wants people to come to a physical location.

- Ensuring your location information is up-to-date and consistent with all major local data providers, especially those that provide location data to Google
