Making Sense Of The Local Landscape (#smx #32D)
If the changes going on in local search are giving you a headache, you're not alone. Google Places is still transitioning to Google+ Local, and there are several types of local listings being created in the process. Google Maps and Apple Maps are both vying for consumer attention on mobile devices. Local businesses know they need citations and reviews, and a trusted company website is a must for traditional search visibility. In this session, our expert panelists will guide local businesses (and marketers that serve them) with strategies and tactics that work in this often confusing local landscape.
