In this new blog series we will be researching and discussing the perks and how-to’s of Google’s growing service, Google+ Local. Google is always looking to add a little simplicity to our lives with new services and now with Google Local, businesses can start to see more traffic from local residents searching out their expertise. Google+ Local allows users to discover and share all the great places that are the local favorites in your area. Lets take a look at what Google Local can do for you!
With your Google account, you can now use Google+ Local to find and receive recommendations catered to you based on your friends, reviews, and your current location. Individuals can now seek out your business or service not only based on reviews but by the local proximity of it to them. Google+ Local has made it easy to attract these customers because of the simple design of publishing photos and information about your business. In exchange, customers will be able to write reviews for family, friends, and other Google users to see as well as be able to read Zagat summaries from other users. Google is revolutionizing the way business owners take charge of their brand via the Internet and search optimization. By utilizing Google+ business owners can link their business page to Google Places and connect to customers through more organic searches, Google+ itself, and mobile devices. What’s really cool about Google+ for your business is the ability to connect with your customers on a social level as well as the ability to share updates and information directly through the search results page. Customers will also be able to endorse and share content about your business through Google’s +1 button. Who doesn’t want that for their business?
