Google is watching you

We all know about yellow pages. It has been the bread and butter of businesses for decades. The problem is that more and more people are turning to the internet for that same information. As a result your ad or listing in Yellow pages may not turn out many leads or customers.

The same is not true of getting listed on Google. The number of people that check it out to find businesses are ever growing into a huge community from coast to coast (and yes, that includes me). The benefit is that they type in the type of business and location they are looking for and see a full description of the business, business ratings, the exact location on the map, and all the contact information they would ever need.

As opposed to getting listed in a phone book the Google listing is free, and quick to set up. To find out how to get listed make sure to check out the video by SiteVisibility’s Creative Director Kelvin Newman. What do you think? Have you gotten your business listed on Google yet?

    We all are aiming for first page results in Google and it cost me nothing. Very easy to set up and best of all it’s free. I am amazed how it got me to the top in locations as far as 25 miles away. Adding San Diego in our title placed us in dozens of searches as far as 25 miles away. Rev. Ron of [url][/url]

    Many years ago after doing a ‘test’ of our YP ad (had them put in a ‘special’ phone number and we tracked how many calls came through), we realized that for the several THOUSANDS of dollars each year for our ad in the YP’s, we were averaging only 2 calls a MONTH! Yes, 2 a MONTH!! And of those 25 calls that year, it only yielded 1 booking! Not even enough to pay for the ad!

    So, we have kept a listing (just name and number) in the book, because it’s free, and have instead put our money into better advertising on the web!

    I don’t have to tell you that the calls and emails grew literally by over 10 times the amount from the YPs!

    Think about it… When was the last time YOU picked up a YPs book to find a business?
