Q: Is Local search different to organic search?

A: Yes and no, yes there are methods you can utilise to help boost your local listings, such as obtaining genuine customer reviews and ensuring you profile is 100% complete, but you can also use traditional organic SEO methods to help promote site for pertinent local search terms.

Q: When adding local listings to Google, Bing etc. is there a listing fee?

A: We provide a complete ‘local search’ service and we can certainly provide a quote for the work, there is no listing fee to add a profile to the major search engines map / local listings.

Q: What if I don’t have a store or office?

A: Each local business listing must have a mailing address. If you work from home or you are a mobile / movable business you can select a “service area” in the account process and therefore choose to hide your actual address.

Q: Can I add multiple locations?

A: There should be only one listing per physical location, so if you have multiple sites you can add a listing. However, if you cover multiple towns, you should instead use the description of your business or categories to explain the different services for your business.
