It is pretty clear that the Internet is becoming the Yellow Pages for most people looking for a business, tradesman or shop.
When was the last time you went to the phone book to look for a service, most people just say I’ll Google it and they look on the Internet.
So if anyone who is in business that does not have an Internet presence is effectively loosing out on a significant amount of business.
The businesses that do have an Internet presence and who have at least done some basic SEO which includes promoting their location will show up in the search results and are likely to get business as a result. So even a plumber in Gloucester needs to consider getting himself or herself on line.
This is a new website for a heating engineer in Gloucester, all it needs is a little bit of time and effort to get some links in place, to be registered as a local business on Google and you can pretty much be sure of a first or second page position in the search results.
