"It's all about local businesses being found in Google and other search engines."
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) November 18, 2010
Purple Trout, LLC has partnered with Local Splash, a local map optimization firm, to help businesses improve their map search engine rankings.
Internet mapping tools have increasingly become a vital marketing resource for local businesses. Consumers often rely on Google Places (formerly Google Maps) and other mapping applications when searching for a particular type of business in their local area.
"It's all about local businesses being found in Google and other search engines," Purple Trout President Steve Phillips said. "The competition is fierce, and businesses need to take advantage of the tools and services that can move them up higher in search engines."
Being a Local Splash authorized reseller enables Purple Trout to use tools and strategies that have a solid track record of getting clients first page placement on local map searches. Purple Trout and Local Splash guarantee similar results within six weeks of client account set-up, or basic service will be free until first page visibility is accomplished.
In order to maximize local mapping presence, Local Splash creates a directory for each client featuring key attributes and vital information about the company's products, services, hours of operation, address, etc.
The information is distributed to all major search engine sites, Internet data providers and directories in a format guaranteeing Purple Trout clients are optimally positioned in map searches relevant to their business.
“Local Splash is excited about our partnership with Purple Trout SEO, “Local Splash Director of Business Development Michael Orefice said."This will be a mutually beneficial relationship that will make Local Splash’s affordable and effective local SEO services available to more businesses across America."
Companies using Local Splash map services tend to see improvements in their search engine rankings in approximately 14 days on some sites, and up to 60 days on others.
"It used to be said your business needed to be found in the Top 30 positions in Google search; then, it changed to the Top 10," said Phillips. "Now, however, you need to be at the top of search results. And, since Google is placing more emphasis on its Places feature, which is listed at the top of local search results, it is imperative businesses are included in Google Places and other mapping services."
Business information is also placed on websites and directories such as Yelp and Google Places where consumers frequently provide feedback on company services. Purple Trout clients can update company information through an online tool that also allows users to review performance reports and upload photos.
