How to AdaptYour Dealership to a
Radically Different Local Search
Environment
Darren Shaw
Founder,Whitespark
@DarrenShaw_
Local Search Has
Changed
Tightening of proximity
in local results
#DSES @DarrenShaw_
Google is sending less
traffic to websites
#DSES @DarrenShaw_
Proximity to searcher
clothing stores
restaurants
pest control
Dealerships often cluster
on the edges of the city
So people living centrally
likely won’t see those
dealerships in their results
With the extreme emphasis
on proximity, every
businesses will rank
somewhere
But it might only be at the exact
point of your location
You can overcome proximity
bias and expand your radius
with strong local search
signals
This dealership is
doing much better
Even when you zoom
out to 500m
1km
And even at 1kmThey rank well across a
huge area
Compared to Southgate Audi who
is only ranking around their
location
Google is sending
less traffic to websites
from local results
Local pack links
used to go to the
website
#DSES @DarrenShaw_
Now they go to the Local Finder
#DSES @DarrenShaw_
And the Local
Finder has all
the info you
need
Just some of the GMB features
released in the past 2 years.
