Setting a Google Local for your Business
If the services provided by your business cover a distinct area you cannot fail to have noticed the importance of Google Local.

Noodp is a meta-tag which handles the display of a websites meta data. Google generates meta data or ‘snippets’ which are essentially a description of the titles and contents of each page on a website.
