Google Places - Way To Target Local Market

Not all local businesses serve their customers from a brick-and-mortar storefront. For example, some businesses operate from a home address. Others are mobile and have no central location (e.g. plumbers). If a local business serves customers at their locations, it can list its Service Area in Google Places - the area it's willing to serve - on Google. Service Area Listings With An Address Listings with a designated service area and a physical address appear the same on Google search results as results without a service area. Once a you click on the listing title, the information window that appears allows you to toggle service areas on and off by clicking 'Show/hide service area'. By default, service areas are hidden. On the map itself, the listing appears as a red pin. If you've chosen 'Show service area,' the service area will appear as a see-through red shape. Service Area Listings Without An Address Listings with a designated service area and no address appear on Google search results with a red circle and the city the business is located in. Once you click on the listing title, the information window that appears allows you to toggle service areas on and off by clicking 'Show/hide service area'. On the map, the listing appears as a red floating circle. If you've chosen 'Show service area,' the service area will appear as a see-through red shape.
