We received a letter today from Google's Micheala Prescott congratulating us on our popularity. On December 1st, Google chose their top 100,000 most popular local businesses across the country and sent them window decals. Ours was proudly and immediately applied-- We were given this honor because in June we added EtherCycle to Google's Local Business Center. The Google local business center is a place to list your store and all relevant contact information. When someone searches on Google for local information, your business listing will appear with whatever information you provided on Google Maps. Essentially the service is like the Yellow Pages of yesteryear. Unlike a Yellow Pages listing, it's completely free. For the most successful listing, include Hours of operation, forms of payment accepted, photos of your storefront, and even your available parking. You can later revise your listing based on analytic information gathered about your customers by the Local Business Center. This powerful feature provides you with the zip codes of your customers and the search terms they used to find you. You can quickly increase the visibility of your business with this fantastic free online advertising tool. Add your business today.
