Ecommerce near metl:dr; Does your ecommerce business make best use of 'near me' Google searches for local businesses? < 1 min read
One nice little earner when it comes to Google searches is the ‘near me‘ search for local businesses.
What is ‘near me‘?
Let’s presume you’re sitting at home on your phone and decide you need to find the nearest plumber.
So, you open up your browser and search for ‘plumbers near me‘.
Using Google, a lot of these searches will be ads, but, sprinkled in between will be ‘other’ plumbers also within close proximity to your current location.
Similarly, you might be visiting somewhere you’re not used to, you get a puncture and need a garage – again you can search for ‘garages near me‘. The returned result will have a local aspect ensuring you can get the problem fixed, quickly.
