Personalized & Local Search with Social Media Drives Web Marketing 3.0

Many businesses are beginning to tap the benefits of social media on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn. Some are networking successfully with local groups on these sophisticated website communication platforms. However, many overlook using the powerful promotional opportunities made available with the local map functions on both Google and Yahoo!

Google is calling their local map functions recently merged with local business search: Google Local. This is a rich platform becoming more helpful to both local searchers and businesses alike.

The personalization of social media platforms to match you with friends, co-workers, and professional connections merged with the ability of search engines to geo-target people, businesses, and organizations comprise the nexus of online marketing. I call this development Web 3.0 marketing.
