Create Your Google+ Local Page
If a local audience is important for your business, make sure you create (or claim) and verify your Google+ Local page.
When someone performs a Google search and specifies a location, Google pulls information from the Local pages of businesses in that area to create its search results. Unlike regular Google+ Business pages, Google+ Local pages feature your businessís location, contact information, and hours. Therefore, having an accurate, complete business profile on your Google+ Local Page will help local customers find and pick your business.
Luckily, creating one of these pages is simple. Google offers a set of detailed instructions for both creating or claiming and verifying your Local Page here:
Creating or claiming your business should only take a matter of minutes, and will be even faster if you already have a Google Account.
Establishing your Google+ Local page is a smart way to target local consumers and become competitive in local search.
