Local business advertising provides highly targeted results
Usawebdezines will implement a number of factors that determine how a site will rank organically on local listings. Factors like the searcher’s location, NAP (name, address and phone number), how relevant your business is to the search, how well your website is optimized and, most importantly, how accurate your address citations are around the web are all taken into consideration by Google – and Usawebdezines takes control of it.
What is NAP?
NAP stands for name, address, phone number. NAP consistency is highly important for strong local listings. Google takes this information from around the web and uses it to get an accurate listing of your business.
We make sure your website, listing and NAP citations are optimized to that you have maximum visibility in search results.

Why is Local Business Advertising (Google Local) a monthly service?
Our team works to build citations on a monthly recurring basis to get your listings found in popular directories. What does this do, exactly? It strengthens the ranking of your local listing, making your Local Business Listing more powerful than ever.
What is the difference between Google Places / Google+ Local and Google My Business?
Google Places (or Google+ Local) are the old names for what is now known as Google My Business. It helps potential customers find you and allows the public to rate your services and products on a five-star system. Google My Business has gone a step further by providing tracking metrics on how well your local listings are performing.
