I know some things about SEO. That stands for search engine optimisation which basically means finding ways to make it easier for potential customers to find you when they use search engines, like Google, Bing or Yahoo. But SEO is not just something that can help people with an online business or website. It can help local businesses with no online presence too.
One element of it I’ve recently explored is registering with Google Places / Google Businesses. It’s free and your business or that of a relative or friend, doesn’t even need a website – you just need a real life, geographical URL – commonly referred to as a ‘postal address’.
It’s easy to do and it will help people who use search engines on their phones or computers to find a local business when they search for a ‘tailor Dungarvan’ or ‘laundrette Bantry’.
It will show a customer where you’re located and you can include opening hours, a phone number, whether there is parking available or not and some images. Along with that, you can select five business categories you wish to be listed under.

Hope it helps somewhat :)
