How Your Potential Customers will Use Your Business Photos

Google Search results - by Business Type and Location

Google Search results, by business type and location - This is a very important place that you need to ensure people find your business. Previously, people used to use business telephone directories to find local businesses to supply services and products. That has all changed, and most people now search online, whether they are looking for bikes in Dereham, wedding venues in Norwich, dentists in Brundall, hairdressers in Wymondham or kitchen equipment in Holt. Whenever people search your business type and location you need to be showing to attract new customers.

In this example, we search in Google for "guitar shop Brighton" and you can see that the result for Badlands Guitars has an enhanced result. If you hover over the Badland Guitar result on a Google page, you will see that the listing expands and it includes a "see inside" to encourage the searchers to take a browse of your virtual tour and hopefully visit you, buy from you online or phone you.
