    Internet Search, Like Politics, Is Local


    (Page 1 of 8 )

    Local search is all the rage. At the 2007 Search Engine Strategies event in New York City there were presentations and exhibitors touting the importance of local search strategies and tactics.

    It's like the presenters and exhibitors just discovered that people are really mostly interested in finding products and services nearby.

    I guess what's really going on is that finally technology, or its application, has caught up with what people really want Internet search to do for them.

    I use Internet search for everything - especially local! We haven't had a copy of the Yellow Pages (or white pages) in our apartment since we got high-speed access.

    We Google directions to the Gap across town. If a movie is playing in Brooklyn we Google directions to the theater and buy the tickets online - so we can get in after we make the trek.

    As a user we know all we need to know about local search. We type in what we want and where we want to get it and bingo - here it is and a map's included. It just doesn't get any better than that.
