Local Search


How do you turn strangers into friends?  With AddStar Local Search!


 

Did you know there are approximately 1.5 billion searches on Google every day and half of those are local searches? Also, did you know that 80% of all purchases are made within 15 miles of where people live and work? If you put those two statistics together you can see that people are using the Internet to search for products and services and buying them locally. Therefore, it is critical that you make sure it is easy for everyone to find your business!

For example, here is a screen capture of a local Google search for plumbers in Denver:

Notice the red pindrops and the small red dots on the map:

  • The small red dots represent plumbers in Denver that Google has identified.
  • The red pindrops are plumbers that have taken advantage of the Google system and are much more likely to be noticed by strangers that want to become friends.
“I experienced a sales increase of 1,000% after AddStar moved us up to #1 in web searches” ~ President of a sports manufacturing company

A quick look at the listings on the left finds that the business associated with the “C” pindrop might be a good choice since it has a five star rating and 15 reviews.

The businesses that are identified with the red pindrops will realize significantly more traffic than the businesses that are not at the top of the local Google search results.

It is important to keep in mind that strangers looking for these businesses can find them in three different ways:

  • Searching Google using a web browser or Google Maps on a desktop of laptop PC.
  • Searching Google using a web browser or Google Maps on a smartphone.
  • Texting the search phrase (e.g. Denver Plumbers) to the short code GOOGL (46645).

Google has effectively replaced the Yellow Pages – and Google is always with you if you have a cell phone.

Up to five local call tracking numbers are included with your Web Presence package.  This allows you to monitor the results of your marketing efforts.
