Geo targeting (in internet marketing) is the method of determining the physical location of a website visitor and deliver different content to that visitor based his location, such as country, region/state, city, metro code/zip code, organization, ISP or other criteria.
Or in more generic terms, “tell Google your address so they can share with potential customers”.
Geo-targeting is the practice of catering to internet searches based upon their addresss. And it’s smart SEO. Many search engines and directories offer some type of geo-targeting capability. Usually, these normally require that your physical address be included on your web site, or that you list your site in the right section of a directory.
“Location! Location! Location!” Well, location is becoming more and more important on the Internet as it in the real world, so don’t skip the geo-targeting aspect of search engine optimization. Give search engines and directories the extra information they need to ensure that your site shows up in locally.
