Local search is an independent bookseller’s friend. We will review the importance of local search in Google desktop and mobile results, as well as voice-command. We’ll then go through the basics of setting up and optimizing a bookseller’s local search presence on Google My Business and related directories, and how to connect your Google My Business listing with your website. This session looks at the latest trends in local searches and mobile users, which is the largest group of people using mobile search.
