Many of the tactics we’ve already been using are already being picked up by Google, giving us a sizable head start.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 28, 2010
Google rolled out radical changes to the popular Google Maps program late Wednesday afternoon. ListedFirst.com has taken equally radical steps to ensure client listing viability within the new program.
As of October 27th, Google has completely revamped and reworked their ever popular Google Maps program. Tens of thousands of business owners across the country have come to rely on the Google Maps system and search engine optimization to drive new customers to their doors.
With the changes, local search results are now displayed much like organic results and the map now appears and “hovers” on the right side of the page. The key difference is they are usually above the organic results. This gives users a more familiar and integrated results page, all while giving local businesses more screen real estate.
Said Jordan Bunnell, President and CEO of ListedFirst.com, “Google is shifting the emphasis away from simple directory listings, to more web page content and this means having a web page is even more essential to securing and holding a spot on the list of top businesses.” He added, “The optimizations ListedFirst delivers have always been, and will continue to be, a full spectrum program. Many of the tactics we’ve already been using are already being picked up by Google, giving us a sizable head start.”
This “full spectrum” approach to search engine optimization and marketing has placed the company in an ideal position to adapt to, and flourish within Google’s new Maps program.
With the increased use of web content, ListedFirst’s premium website design services enable companies without web presence to customize a professional site that not only enables them to compete in the ever expanding online marketplace, but gives businesses a strategic advantage within the new Google Maps format.
As the smart phone industry has expanded, Google Maps has evolved to service customers who access the program from their mobile devices. Said Jordan, “More than ever, business owners need a strong online presence, and with the explosion of the smart phone industry, more and more potential customers are finding businesses on the go. ListedFirst has developed and refined an all encompassing program to deliver new customer traffic from this source to its clients.”
