Google organic search drives over one-quarter of web visits to local business sites.
The UK-based firm BrightLocal surveyed U.S. consumers to determine how they find local businesses on the web, and the results demonstrate the importance of claiming Google Places pages and boosting SEO.
Chadwick Martin Bailey and comScore, both highly respected research organizations, affirmed the obvious - smartphone users look for stores where they are going via their smartphones.
In addition, Chadwick Martin Bailey found that 58% of people responding to their survey said that they use their smartphones while shopping to find local businesses.
comScore says that 49% of the people answering their questions verified that finding or locating stores and restaurants on their mobile phones is their top shopping activity.
