As Google technology grows and develops, it’s important that you keep up with it. One change Google has recently made is that they have put much more importance on local searches which involves Google My Business (formerly Google Places Page and Google Maps). Google My Business has become what Yelp used to be, but with more direct effect on your customers to generate much more business. It’s an integral part of any business’ operation.

Like Google, Bing also has it’s own business management portal known as Bing Places. With the majority of new desktop, laptop PCs and Microsoft based tablets having Bing set as their default search engine, having a well developed Bing Places page set up for your company is an absolute must.

Why Is A Bing Places Page Important?

Simply, the overwhelming majority of computer users will use and will never change the default search engine that comes with their computer. On Windows based machines, that search engine is Bing. Because of this, consolidating all of your listing efforts to Google is a fatal mistake that leaves a lot of missed traffic that could be converted into customers for your business. Just as with Google My Business, Bing Places provides all of your relevant business information so that you rank well in their searches while displaying on their direction maps.
