Local Search UK is still different from Local Search in the US. Google has been slower to roll out outside of US, but nevertheless, there is a healthy and rapidly growing demand for Local SEO services in the UK driven by an army of phone users using local search and google maps and searching for the nearest restaurant, bar, garage, dentist, law firm, Builder, Emergency Plumber or whatever.
If you are a local business, you may have been feeling left out as the stories of digital transformation mostly went right past you, unless of course you were a taxi owner or rented videos.
Google Local Search
All that has been changing rapidly in the past year or two since Google introduced its local businesses section. You will surely have noticed the map section showing up to five businesses located near to where you are and accompanied by small advert similar to a paid listing.
