Local Maps SEO is one of the most efficient technique to get better traffic and position. This article also guides about where and how to submit your business listing in Local Maps.

Local Maps provides a short cut in Search Engine listings. Even the websites with low page ranks can jump to first page by using local maps and business listings.

There are some requirements and situations you must know.

1-    Local Maps are very effective, if your business is in Europe and America. Most of these countries have complete maps like directions, locations, streets.  Asian countries are not properly listed in maps.

2-    Your business must have physical location, because search engines will verify it. You have to give your complete contact information.

Do people like to search in Local Maps?

Well, let me tell you, American and British may use Local Maps to search everything. Weather search is made for business, geo-location or for a particular event.

Physical location view of shop, store or any business is always attractive to customers.

As I observed, now most of the website owner require Google or MapQuest integration for the ease of visitors to locate them. Every business/social event is placed on the website with directions on the map.

So, Web businesses are already in this trend.

One of the most popular yellow pages site in the United Kingdom (UK) is http://www.yell.com. Try to search any business and you will find a location map as well.

Insite linking is defined as " linking from one web page to another web page within the same website". It is a part of Internal linking. If you observe website trends closely, You will feel the difference in navigation techniques. Sometime Top Menu is in trend and then Side Menu. However in some search engine attractive website, you will observe Footer Menus, Side Menu, Left Bottom links, Inline links etc.
