FACT: People like to shop and buy locally especially if we make it easy for them.

They do this by adding a map on the SERP page (Search engine results page)  between the paid ads and the organic listings with little markers listing local businesses near you that match your search criteria.

Often users will just click the nearest one and off they go, others, who like to do a little research first, may check out the reviews for some those businesses, and no prize for guessing which businesses they chose first, yep.. the 5 star companies tend to get more views than the businesses with no stars or companies with only one or two stars (Managing your online reputation is important folks!)

Google then make it super easy for potential customers to find you by adding links to your website or they can just click the directions button and BOOM! the navigator on their phones is leading them straight to you!
