Google Explains Importance of Local Listings

19th Mar 2010 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read

GPS navigation, travel and tourism cocneptGoogle has advised businesses on the importance of making their listings easily available on its search and map functions.

Discussing the matter on its Inside AdWords site, the organisation points out that the majority of people turn to the internet whenever they need information about a company.

As a result, firms should use SEO services to make themselves visible to internet browsers.

“Creating a business listing in the Local Business Centre helps ensure potential customers find you and allows you to maintain full control over how your listing appears,” Google notes.

Similarly, location targeting can also be used via an AdWords account to ensure that advertisements are only displayed to people within close proximity to the enterprise.

Also this week, Google announced that it has allowed all publishers access to multiple Google-certified ad networks, which means that they may be able to generate higher revenue as more firms compete for space on their websites.

    Why Bing is a Valuable Paid Media Platform

    For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored.  Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
