If you perform a search on YouTube for a specific location you’ll see a map just below the search box on the left. Click on the map and you can find all videos for that local geographic area. Is this a good tool for local businesses?
It may be. I think the YouTube geographic search has some work that needs to be done to it, but you can upload videos of your local community or business and anyone performing a local search of videos for your area will also be given the opportunity to view your video. If you live in a small community then you’ll have an advantage over the folks living in large metro areas. It’s a numbers game.
Video marketing is beginning to pick up speed and YouTube adding this new local geographic search feature will make video marketing even more important for small businesses. I’m looking forward to future improvements.
