Google Local is Killing Me!

Apr 16, 2004 - 4:43 pm 0 by

Well not me, but many people. Every since Google started serving up local results in mid March, people have been complaining about lost traffic, lost revenue.

Over at WebmasterWorld, one reports a traffic drop of "10% after Google Local came about".

The discussion then moves on to how this will affect AdWords and Brett Tabke, the owner of WebmasterWorld, says "Let's cut to thet bottom line: if you want to survive, then you are going to have to compete with the locals. To do that, you probably going to have to appear as if you are "local" in nature."
