Address information

Search engines also use postal addresses in the "about" or "contact " page to detect your default country. If you have a Google Map of your business location on your contact page, it can also help with Google Local or regional rankings. Even though the address element technically means "contact info for this Web page", if you use an address element on your website, like the example below, Google will interpret it as a physical address.

Code Sample

<address>
Business Name
Street Name
City Name
Zip code
Country Name
</address>
[/quote]

What will this do, or how can it help me?

Well most of us don't want global business or to be listed in Germany's Google. We want the lady 2 blocks away to find us. Anything that can help you rise in the rankings for local searches is what you need.

I can't say it applies for all major search engines...I do know it works for google.com.

This is free advice on how to put address tags around your contact info, to strengthen your local searches.

Richard,

This is great! So ultimately this will help if someone looks for lawn care and then a specific town?

How do you think this would compare to having your town name in your web page title?

Well now it doesn't replace any other forms of SEO just helps point google to your contact info easier.

Richard:

Before your post, I was unfamiliar with the Address tag.

Thanks for the info:
