Google Fires up Local Business Listings

The local business listing has been fired up with new yellow tags. This new feature is set to beef up local listings on Google.com and Google Maps. Some of us remember the days gone by of the blue tags which made a slight appearance followed by a quick exit.

The yellow tags can enhance your listing emphasizing latest offers to coupons, videos, menus for restaurants etc. All this power does come with a price, you would have to pay a monthly fee of $25. For all you SEO Experts , this however does not do anything for your optimization of your Website or your listing rank for that matter. Google will clearly indicate which parts of the search results are sponsored.

This local feature will also be available on Google Mobile search making it even more powerful for companies willing to spend the money.
