Google and other major search engines are now showing results based on the location of the person who is searching.  For example if you are in Annapolis, MD and search for Auto Repair then Google will show local companies.  Google feels that you would rather be looking for someone local to you rather than five hundred miles away.  You have the ability to claim this location as yours and make quite a few changes to the results that come up for your company.  You can change the contact information, hours of operation, types of payment accepted and even ad a picture of your location.  Google offers this services free to business owners all in hopes of providing their customers (the people searching) better results and ads.   Maggio Web Design also offers the set up of your Google Maps profile page free as part of any of our web design packages.
