Why Google Places is important for a Law Firm

When you last performed a search on Google did you notice that several of the results were displayed on a corresponding map? If you simply attributed this to the genius of Google then you've ignored a powerful tool that can help gain your firm greater recognition.

Becoming registered in Google places can be a great proactive way of reaching millions of users quickly and for free. Searching for businesses online is now more common than any other method. This makes it ever more important for your firm to be found easily online. With Google places you can create a listing for your firm in just a few minutes with added extras such as photos, descriptions, videos, coupon offerings, and other details that will encourage potential clients to contact you. You can gain all of this exposure even if you don't have a website and best of all its free. If you do have a website, Google places can help promote better organic ranking by adding Search Engine Optimization value.

Your firms listing is easy to edit and manage so you can make sure its details are current and correct. Through a simple verification process your firm can have its Google places listing up and running in just minutes.
