It’s not a major task to create mobile ready directory pages that allow shoppers to not just search for a type of store that’s nearby, but to also search for actual products.

Netfira Local Search can find information about product prices and availability that Google is generally unable to find – and all in real time too.
Finding what Google can’t
Content is king when it comes to local searches. Netfira provides fresh, changing and relevant content in abundance. What’s more, much of the content will be unique as Google basically “stops at the door” and cannot see a business’s current products and prices. Google is strictly limited to indexing what’s on an advertiser’s website – which may be out of date – and cannot see what’s actually happening in real time. Because of this constantly changing stream of data, the amount of fresh content provided by Netfira Local Search for SEO purposes will typically dwarf any existing information a business directory will hold on each advertiser.

Netfira Local Search is completely functional and easy to install “out of the box”. There’s also a wide range of configuration options which are ideal for further services and consulting. These range from custom integrations within existing website and options for wholesalers.
