We’re looking at the role of GPS accelerators for a business’ listing distribution.
GPS Accelerators and Their Role in the Local Search Ecosystem
Location-based searches have transformed the way local businesses promote themselves online. Back in 2016, Google revealed that almost one-third of all mobile searches were related to location. With the ubiquity of mobile devices today it’s probably safe to assume this figure has risen.
As the ways consumers find new businesses have changed, there’s a greater need to expand online visibility. Consumers search for nearby restaurants, stores, plumbers, mechanics and a whole host of other services before making a buying decision – based on proximity, reviews and other metrics.
As you will know, data amplifiers and data accelerators are at the core of this process. But more specifically, when it comes to ensuring that a client’s location is findable, GPS accelerators are your most valuable asset. GPS accelerators ensure that no matter the mapping app, GPS or in-dash navigation, a business will get found.
