A Google Local Business Listing Can Take You to the Top of Google

[wpts_spin]Google’s launch of {universal|global} search in May 2007 {meant|suggested} that {content|material|web content} from Google Images, Google Local/Maps, Google {Video|Video Clip}, {and|as well as|and also}  {could|might|can} be {integrated|incorporated} {into|right into} its “{traditional|standard|typical}” {Web|Internet} {search results|search results page|search engine result} {pages|web pages}.

This {means|implies|indicates|suggests} that Google can – {and|as well as|and also} {often|frequently|typically|commonly|usually} does – {{serve|offer} up|dish out|provide} {local|regional|neighborhood} {business|company|service|organisation} listings as {part|component} of the {Web|Internet} {search results|search results page|search engine result} {even|also} if {location|place|area} is not {specified|defined} (it {appears|shows up} that Google’s search {algorithm|formula} {is able to|has the ability to} {detect|spot|discover|find|identify} “{local|regional|neighborhood} intent”).

It’s {increasingly|progressively|significantly} {common|typical|usual} to {find|discover|locate} Google {local|regional|neighborhood} {business|company|service|organisation} listings on the {first|very first|initial} {page|web page} of {search results|search results page|search engine result} – {often|frequently|typically|commonly|usually} {at the top|on top} – as the “Google {Local|Resident|Citizen} {Business|Company|Service|Organisation} Three-Pack” ({a reference|a recommendation|a referral}, {obviously|certainly|undoubtedly|clearly}, to the {fact|truth|reality} that Google {displays|shows|presents} the {top|leading} {three|3} {local|regional|neighborhood} {business|company|service|organisation} {search results|search results page|search engine result} in {a cluster|a collection} of {three|3}).

{{Alternatively|Additionally|Conversely}, Google may {display|show|present} a search {query|inquiry|question} box {at the top|on top} of the {search results|search results page|search engine result} {page|web page} that asks searchers: {Looking for|Searching for|Trying to find|Seeking} {local|regional|neighborhood} {results|outcomes} for {keyword|key words|keyword phrase|key phrase|search phrase}?|Google may {display|show|present} a search {query|inquiry|question} box at the top of the search results {page|web page} that asks searchers: Looking for {local|regional|neighborhood} {results|outcomes} for {keyword|key words|keyword phrase|key phrase|search phrase}?}

{Either {way|method|means}|In either case|In any case|Regardless}, a Google {Local|Resident|Citizen} {Business|Company|Service|Organisation} listing can {put|place} {a business|a company|a service|an organisation} on the fast-track to {a coveted|a sought after|a desired|a desirable} {position|setting|placement} {at the top|on top} of Google’s {search results|search results page|search engine result} that {may|might} have been {impossible|difficult} to {capture|catch|record} {otherwise|or else}.[/wpts_spin]
