Google+ Local

Click here to view a sample Google+ Local page.

Google has changed the way it displays results for local based search queries.

It now frequently combines the natural, organic results such as the example below:

Natural Listing on Google

 

…with the Google mapped results

Google Maps Listings

 

…to produce a listing that looks like this:

Google Places Listing

 

The Google+ Local listing differs to natural listings in several key ways:

  • It has a red marker which links to Google maps
  • Your address and phone number are included
  • There is a link to your Google+ Local page, which can include opening hours, description of the business, photos of your business, videos, coupons, reviews and other features

Google regularly favour businesses with Google+ Local pages, especially for local based search queries such as "financial adviser Nottingham" (as seen below)

Google Places search results

Google+ Local is a free Google service.
