When deciding which businesses to show for geo-targeted searches (searches that contains phrases such as ‘near me’), Google & Bing will take data into account that they find across a variety of sources. As well as utilising the information they will find on a website, search engines will also assess local citation sites for relevant information.
With more and more people using mobile phones to find out about local business services, businesses should ensure all their listings online are accurate and uniform.
