Your Customers Use Google Maps Listings to Search For Local businesses

According to this video by Google, even Aliens could find a local business that has been listed..

The stats now confirm that Google maps and local search in general from other search engines such as Bing and Yahoo is taking over from the yellow pages.

These days if somebody wants some information they have the information at hand either through a laptop, a desktop computer and increasingly through their cell phones, essentially they have more info in their pocket than what they can find in the yellow pages. You can get movie trailers, directions, even real life pictures straight from your pocket, i think its safe to say that if you are spending heavily on old media like yellow pages that you should start to consider the budgets being modified to rely less on the old yellow book and more on getting on local search centers from Google, Bing and Yahoo.

If your potential customers are not finding your business on Google maps listings, then perhaps they will find your competitors.
