Local search ranking and conversion factors to know for 2022

Introduction

We know that Google Search is the place to be when you want to be seen by local searchers in their moments of need, as 83% of local consumers use Google to find information about nearby businesses. These consumers are searching with the intent to take action, too, and 90% will make a purchase within one week of their initial search.

However, the top of Google’s local organic search and MapPack results can be incredibly competitive. How can you consistently rank and get found for the keywords and queries your most motivated customers are using to find local businesses?
