Google Voice + Google Local Listing Ads = The perfect local advertising combination for Dallas Small Businesses

Introducing Google VoiceGoogle Voice call blocking limited, company says only 100 phone numbers do not have call connectivity.

As I said in my previous post about the impact of Google’s latest move into the business telephone business. I believe that Google Voice will be a great source of call tracking in the future if they allow you to purchase additional phone numbers. I am hoping that they incorporate this in the Local Listing Ads they are testing in a San Diego and San Fransisco.

I also think it would be great if Google offered some sort of phone number search in the near future as well as a “listed number title option” that can be indexed in Google Local Listings and Ads. This would be a very powerful strategy to dominate the local search market and keep up with Search at the same time.

Easy sales pitch for Google and a much harder one for resellers such as Idearc Media (, AT&T,, and other big corporate resellers in my opinion. I am anxious to see what takes place in the next 12 months! Google is getting very aggressive with rolling out offering that help local SMB’s…… my future clients will rejoice!
