Local Optimization is more important than ever. With smart phones, and mobile devices it wont be long that desk tops will be the minority in the interface space. In-fact at my home it already is, with the PDA,I-phone and I-Pad out number the 1 home computer 7 to 1.
The reason it is so important, is the search engines pull results that include LOCAL SIGNALS.
EXAMPLE: If you google “PIZZA” in NY you will get the pizza stores in the area not your home, and that is starting to become the norm!
WHY? Google wants to give the best search results possible to the user, so they will continue to use GOOGLE. (so they make more money $$)
Theory: Most people will do business with someone local if they have the chance and all things are equal, Google knows this. So help Google make more money by providing services that meet the needs of the people searching for product.
