Google Local Search Rollout

If you thought searching online was only for national or worldwide information, not any more.  Google has finished its worldwide rollout of local search in its search engine.  Every time your search now Google will guess to your location to give your more geo centric results.

How does Google know your location?  Google uses your IP address to get a general sense of your geographical area.  If you need to change your location you can click the “change location” link at the upper right hand corner of your page.

Searching online is now more and more important for local businesses to create an effective web presence.
