Austin, TX, May 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The marketing scientists at Outrank.com, a leading national provider of localized search engine marketing services, have been working hard over the last week to power their customers' online marketing results to new levels using the newly relaunched Google Places platform.
"We're committed to getting a business ranked on the front page of one of the search engines in 60 days or less, and Google Places is an excellent opportunity to create trust with potential customers and enable businesses to reach out to them," said David Rubin, CEO of Outrank.com. "While organic rankings are still incredibly valuable, local Maps results allow users to connect on a personal level with your business."
Google customers are increasingly turning to enhanced Google Maps in order to locate nearby services, such as shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, banks and other services. Not only are these services becoming popular on desktops, but more and more Android phone users are finding this capability important in the launch of new consumer focused phone apps.
Not only will Google Places allow customers to provide map location information about their business on Google Maps, but the new enhanced features enable Outrank.com to add and optimize information about a company's hours of operation and services offered so customers have another way to find a business.
"People may not search in a search engine to find a company, but simply click on their local map and select a business from the map," Rubin said. "It is becoming incredibly important to be on these local maps for neighborhood level searches. We are excited to be providing these optimized map search services to our Outrank.com customers."
