Can you remember the last time you reached for the Yellow pages to search for a business that could supply the product or service you needed?

More often these days you will do a quick search on Google. Some times you get lucky other it can be very frustrating. You find businesses that can supply what you want, but they can be anywhere. Do you wish Google would only show the ones near to you. Like to old Yellow pages use to?

Google has released a free local directory that very few business even know exist.

Look at this example below. Enter the search "pizza huntingdon" into Google.

pizza huntingdon

See the map showing 3 local pizza restaurants in Huntingdon right at the top of Google's search results. It's just like using the yellow pages but better!

Do you know you can list your self in Google's local directory for free?

Go to local.google.co.uk and click the link Add/Edit Your Business on the bottom left. Fill in your company details, list up to 5 categories you want to be found for, bit like the old Yellow pages, and that's it. Google will send you a letter in the post to confirm that your who you say you are and then you will be listed at the top of Google in about 6 weeks!
