Canadian's looking for information about local driving schools are going beyond wanting a simple phone number or business address
Brampton, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) September 30, 2011
Driving Instruction is the latest category of business listings to get added to the Canadian online directory LocalHood.ca. And driving schools in Brampton, ON, could be the first to benefit because LocalHood.ca has launched its Driving Instruction category by publishing a featured listing described as Brampton driving lessons. The listing is being optimized to attract organic search engine traffic related to new driver licensing resources.
Increasingly, local businesses realize that a visible web presence can lead to more phone calls and more web traffic to their company websites. A listing on LocalHood.ca helps local businesses increase their online visibility that supports awareness for their products or services and for their brand name.
According to a recent statement made by Chris O'Neill, Country Director for Google Canada, 86% of Canadian consumers research a product or service online before they buy. Online research by consumers extends to all types of products and services including queries for local driving instruction.
A new driver in the Brampton area for example, will likely go to their preferred search engine and type in a search query like driving lessons Brampton and then, click through the search engine results that are returned, looking for information that is relevant to what they want.
"Canadian's looking for information about local driving schools are going beyond wanting a simple phone number or business address," according to LocalHood Marketing Manager Wilf Barnes. “Consumers are increasingly seeking out reviews, price comparisons, hours of operation and coupon or discount opportunities for the products and services that they're interested in," claims Barnes.
