Are you looking to boost local traffic to your HNN website? What if there was a great new way to get local search traffic to your HNN website – without spending a penny?
Local search results in Google. Click for larger image.
One of the great things about the Herbal Nutrition Network is that we provide visibility for distributors who are using our services. The locate map on our homepage is designed to send local traffic directly to your HNN website. And since Google is the most popular search engine, you can now increase the likelihood that someone will find you by adding your business information to Google’s new Local Business Center. The local business center is a free service that will allow you to customize the way your business listing appears in Google. You’re able to customize the way your listing appears – you can even link the listing directly to your HNN website and add current promotions and coupons to the listing!
As search engines continue to increase their emphasis on local search results, we only expect to see more localized results from search engines in the future. Above is a screenshot of a search for “herbalife” in Google on 8/17/2009. The local result appeared automatically about halfway down the page. I did not specify a city name, I just searched for “herbalife”. If you search for “herbalife, Wichita, KS”, you’ll also see local results – but higher up on the page.
This is a relatively new feature from Google, so you can expect to see the listings change from day to day, but we think this is a fantastic opportunity to position your Herbalife distributorship for local growth.
You can read more about the Google Local Business Center here, or you can add your HNN website to the Local Business Center here. As you add your listing, don’t forget to add your complete HNN address to the listing, including your username.
Also, if you don’t want your home phone number in the listing, check out Google Voice. This is another free tool from Google that allows you to create a new local phone number for free. The Google Voice number will ring the phone number(s) of your choice and even comes with free voicemail.
