Crazy for Google? Go Local – Get or Update Your Law Firm Listing on Google Local


Yesterday, Google released two new services for mobile phone and wireless device users: Google Local and Google SMS Driving Directions.

Google first released Google Local last year to enable users to find relevant local information with neighborhood business listings, maps, directions, and useful web pages. Now, Google has extended this service to XHTML-enabled mobile phones, but with a cleaner interface. So, whether you are looking for pizza or Kreisman in Chicago, Google will show you the way.


The search results for Google Local comes from a combination of Google’s index of web pages and Yellow Pages data. If you cannot find your business in Google Local or your information is incorrect, the Google Local Business Center lets you list your law firm or update information about it on Google Local for free.

From the Google Local Business Center you can add a law firm description, they types of payment you take (cash, credit cards, check…), your hours of operation, your contact email and Web site address and the category Services-Attorneys

Once you sign up for updating your listing, Google will send a letter to the address you provided with a personal identification number and activation instructions, activate and Google will add your updated listing to the Google Local database to go live with the next update.
