Nowadays, more and more people find local information through search engines instead of traditional forms of media such as yellow pages, newspapers, and classified ads. In fact, Google states that approximately 97% of consumers use the Internet to search for local businesses.
Google’s Google Plus Local (Formerly Google Places) is currently the biggest and most important local engine used by people around the world to search for local businesses. The ironic thing is that Google Plus Local is also plagued by data issues and is a literal minefield for inexperienced SEOs.
At Infocus Law Marketing, we understand Google Plus Local and how to give your law firm the best chance to appear high in Google’s localized organic results, Google map results and the map results on mobile devices.
And if you (or a previous marketing company) has gotten your law firm into trouble with data issues, merges, duplicates or suspensions we can help you troubleshoot and recover.
Besides Google Plus Local there are hundreds of other local search directories and sites online… many of which you need to have a presence on… we can also help you in this department.
