And, with the search engines, and your Google account status and origin of search, your query results will display with a local dataset as much as possible (you can select or change location easily too). Marissa Mayer, Vice President of Location and Local Services at Google is further making this a cornerstone for local, social search.
When you consider Google’s local search technology (maps, mobile, earth) and combine it with local social media strategies and tools, experts can show you how to win the social media game for your business within your region (and beyond). If you use LOCAL SEO, you must leverage search, but also social signals.
