How to Do a Local Search on Google
Let’s use Google as the example and say that you are looking for a new auto repair shop in your area. So in the search box type “auto repair” and then your zip code “13205“. (See below)
Then scroll down and you will see Google Maps pushpins. (See below)
This section allows you to click on links to a business’s website, or their Google Places page where you can read reviews if they have any. From there you can make a decision to contact them via phone, email, or in person.
It sure beats using the yellow pages!
If you have any questions about local search post them in the comment box below. Happy Searching!
