As you may or may not know I used to be based in Malbourne Victoria
So if you go to google and type Web Design in Melbourne you’ll see me in the organic (left hand side) listed in position 3 and 4
Perhaps more importantly you’ll also see a link to my site in the local business results map at the top of the page. (listing E). You see this map before you see anything else
This is a google map local listing.
This is one incredibly useful and a very powerful way to get that top ten visibility fast. Some of the sites in that list above are not to be found listed elsewhere in the top 3 pages of google. Yet there they are – in pole position
Now I dont just provide website design services for the local Frankston businesses but it doesnt hurt having this listing so prominantly displayed.
So if you service a particular area get yourself into google local search/ maps and you might also get a high visibility listing regardless of how well your site ranks elsewhere
It takes about 5 minutes to do.
And it’s free!
