Plug In - Turn On

Posted on January 6, 2016

Google is highly complex so that your business doesn't need to be. Searches are now made from a great variety of devices and often reflect the user's profile, habits, history, likes and dislikes, and of course location. To battle through all of this or indeed take advantage of it, is the skill of SEO experts. But what if there was another, simpler way, that was based only on your geographical presence.

A major part of the Google infrastructure is Google Maps. Most importantly, Google Street View. If you thought it was just a quirky way to have a look around without actually being there, think again. Google Street View links not only geographical routes and areas but also Properties. Yes, including your business property (location).
