In 2010, Google began to display Google My Business Listings / Google Maps (Local Pack) as part of the organic search results when users search for keywords, businesses, products and services. (e.g. website designers Newport Beach) . Today, these Google My Business Listings are becoming more and more utilized by searchers in front of desktops, tablets, and most specifically mobile phones.
Now, Google processes over 40,000 search queries every second on average, which translates to over 3.5 billion searches per day and 1.2 trillion searches per year worldwide.
Research shows that a large number of Google Users prefer to click on the organic results because they believe information is more relevant to what they are searching for. The "Local Pack" is becoming increasingly popular because it gives the searcher the ability to read and write reviews and click through to the website. Google My Business Listings also provide the local phone number and business address to get directions or click to call.
