Straight to the top (of the map).
Localized is what every marketing agency on the planet would be doing if they realized how important Google Maps really is for local businesses. It’s a pretty big deal.

Wondering why nobody is talking about local search results? So were we, which is why we started getting serious about Localized—helping double leads for tons of our clients.
Turns out that putting your business on the map involves literally putting it on Google’s map. Check out some of our massive success stories below to see Localized in action.
Over the past few years, Google has REALLY started caring about certain signals that (in there eyes) legitimizes a local business. Used to be that you could just add a fake address on your site and add your biz to Google maps for a bump in the search results, but Google is getting a lot smarter.
While their search algorithm updates definitely help to weed out businesses with fake addresses, legitimate businesses who rely on local traffic are sometimes left out in the cold.
Localized is our answer to Google’s evolution, and it aims to give our clients a fighting chance in in increasingly hostile local search environments.
While there’s no concrete list of what Google looks for in a local business listing, there are a couple of things we’ve found to be true as we’ve developed Localized.
Google looks for “signals” that indicate whether your company actually has a brick and mortar location at each of your local addresses. Those signals include things like reviews (REAL reviews), directory listings, and proper markup to allow your business to be found.
Even things as simple as forgetting to optimize your Google My Business account can have a huge impact on your local visibility. Localized takes care of all of that.
We use BirdEye’s text messaging service to send out requests to customers that you provide us, which prompts them to leave reviews. REAL, authentic reviews. Some agencies give fake reviews, and that’s really not good for your long term business health.
There’s speculation on whether it does or does not. From our experience, we believe that Google does reward your organic search ranking when they receive local signals that your business is legitimate.
Localized is definitely a huge part of the puzzle for companies that depend on local business, that much is true. With so many marketing agencies neglecting local search (or just doing it really poorly), local search represents a real frontier and opportunity for building your business online.
Without Localized, when someone types in Your Niche + Your City, your company doesn’t show up—or if it does, it shows up at the bottom...which is the same as not showing up. That’s a huge deal, but at least now we can do something about it.
