How to make sure your salon or spa shows up in local search results on Google.

Submitting your site to Google Local enables you to show up for local searches, appear on Google Maps for searches , and appear for general search via a search when Google detects that a local result is needed. So basically when someone searches for Hair salon in Google and Google knows the person doing the search is in a certain city it will first show the Hair Salons that are in the local area first. Obviously this is very approriate because most people who are searching for a Hair salon are searching for a Hair Salon that is nearby!

Here is a guide to getting your salon or spa business information listed in Google Local and also how you can modify your listing if the information has changed!

1)Go to Google Local at http://local.google.com to see if your business is already listed or not. Also if you are listed make sure all the information about your salon or spa is correct. Check your phone number, website and hours of operation especially.

2)Search for your company name or type of business, followed by a space and your city or ZIP code, Google may already have a map of your local city on the screen so then just type in the search box your salon or spa company name.

3) If your listing isn’t there yet, go to https://www.google.com/local/add/login.

4)Sign in to your Google account, if you have a Gmail account, you can enter that email address and password. If you don’t have an account choose create a New Google Account and sign up for free.

5)Submit your free business listing by following the instructions that will appear. You can specify your hours of operation, payment options you accept, website, and more descriptive text about your salon or spa. Choose up to five categories for your salon or spa. Select a verification method, either by phone or by mail.
