Andy Taylor from Merkle, have put together data in an article, http://selnd.com/2mTXr73 about the growth of “Get location details” … The team have worked hard and much have happend at the Google maps just in the last few years.. They have start focusing on monetizing searches with local intent and navigational queries..
As an results of the quick and huge increase of smartphone users globaly, people use their mobile devices in an fast increasing pace, to find local businesses by using Google maps..
Precisely because of that, so it is obviously important for all types of small businesses to have a real “4 pillars” Internet Presence.. http://www.midliferswebbusiness.com/website-tool.html
I have said it many times before, still in 2017, more than 50% of all small Businesses, have not or have just a poor online presence.. So my strongest advice is still remains, get your business sites verified by Google as soon as possible..
Have a Fabulous Day Folks:)
