Local Online Search Optimization Services

We put your NYC business on the map, literally


Google says a third of all mobile searches are local. Every month there are more than 10 billion unique searches performed in the United States, and over 40% of those queries are local searches – these include city, state, or even neighborhood names in their searches – and Vab Media can help you make the most of this opportunity.

A local search typically includes a location modifier on a keyword and is used by customers seeking a business or product in their area.
Typical local search queries include not only information about “what” the site visitor is searching for (such as keywords, a business category, or the name of a consumer product) but also “where” information, such as a street address, city name, postal code, or geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude.

When these types of searches are performed, the search engines will often pull a geographic map of local business listings with important contact and directional information. Vab Media Digital Agency will optimize your local business listings for those geographically focused searches. “Near me” searches are becoming more and more popular because on-the-go searchers often want to find a business, store or office located as close as possible to their current location.

“Business listing information can also be distributed via the traditional Yellow Pages, electronic Yellow Pages aggregators, and search engine optimization services. Some search engines will pick up on web pages that contain regular street addresses displayed in machine-readable text (rather than a picture of text, which is more difficult to interpret)” – Wikipedia
Local search advertising specifically targets local consumers ready to buy a certain product or service. A higher percentage of these customers will purchase once they’ve found the locations where they can do business near them.
Google Facts:

  • Google states that (1) out of (5) searches on Google are related to a location.
  • There are (400) million local searches out of (2) billion searches done every day.
  • 9 out of 10 people who are looking for a local retail store, restaurant, or business will turn to search engines to discover their options and for reviews.
  • These days 80% of the people who search online use Google. More people search online than use the Yellow Pages.
