Some 90% of consumers use search engines before shopping locally. They use desktops, cell phones, tablets, apps, maps or a GPS. When local customers are doing a search, you want to be found. A strong local search presence is important to get more customers in your door.

Local listing is very important from SEO point of view. You can easily add your product or business details like contact information, related images and working hours. If a user enters a keyword related to a particular product or service in the search engine, he will be directed to your site. In most cases, submissions on high authority local listing sites matters.

Yeah, from my understanding, even for some businesses where location shouldn't really matter, people still like to work with someone local. I work in lead generation, which is all phone based, and still we get a good percentage of our business from local people.

Local Business Listing is pretty obvious – the more sites your business information is listed on, the higher chance you have of being discovered. If you opt in to Social Medium’s Enhanced Local Listings, your information will be blasted across 40+ sites! People will find you no matter what site they’re searching.
