Google Maps is another impressive way to attract visitors to your business website. This functionality is also creeping into Page 1 of the Google search engine results page - and it's beginning to push all the other results down the page! You use Google Places to add your business to Maps. You can also be found when people use the very popular "Find Nearby" button in the regular Google or within Google Earth!
It is also very become more important since 2009 due to the explosion in the use of iPhones, Blackberrys and other smartphones that all have very usable and speedy internet browser connections. The iPhone even has a compass built into their Google search results that can point to the nearest bed and breakfast or restaurant etc.
How smart is that! Follow the compass to the nearest bed and breakfast - but only if you are added to Google Maps.
The statistics for future ownership of these smartphones is mind boggling and its impossible to predict what new functionality will appear.
So add your business to Google Maps now!
