    Local listings play an important role in SEO. Every business should have a Google listing. These listings are practical, useful and free. Everytime someone visits your local listing, Google earns you a point for the same. Local listings act as a life blood for your business. For example if someone is looking for some pizza shop in LA, all the local places listing come to the top then the regular Web search results. If you are there your listing will come with a map apart from the web search result of your site.

    To get listed in Google local business, you must have a business phone number or business mailing address. Then, at the end of the submission process you will be given a PIN number that will complete the submission.

    Local listing is use to promote local business and attract local clients. Google map, Google Places are the place for registered your business and to get good ranking in local listing get back links from other local directories and user generated reviews are the best way. With local listing you can add your business photo and business video etc… It is free service provide by Google.

    Yes, I too agree. Local listing is as important in SEO as heart in body. Local listing helps to rank well in search engines and thus more back links.

    Now-a-days, Google is showing "Place Listing" in top ten position. So, you have to done properly with "Company Name+ Keyword + Location" with this format. So user can easily find you with search query. If you need example than : go to maps.google.com search "Website Design Firm & Web Development Company Glendale, CA". Sure you will get your answer.

    I think it is still valuable to get listed in as many well used local online business directories as possible:

    Bing
    Yelp
    Yellowpages

    Are just a few that come to mind. Most of the time the listings are free create so there is no reason not to get listed if you are a business and have a physical address.
