Google has estimated that over one-third of business searches have what is called ‘local intent’—for example, this means that someone interested in finding a new property would search for ‘real estate agents in Victoria’ to find services relevant to their area. This is something that most businesses should be looking to tap into.
Even if you don’t think your services are as geographically oriented as that example, if you have a physical store or location where your services are offered, there’s a good chance people are using searches with local intent to find you. After all, no one wants to drive hours to browse or buy products, access services, dine out etc.
