Local Search, social media and real time will be three of the largest factors in search for 2011

Local, social, and real-time will be three of the largest factors in on-line search for 2011.

Of nearly a thousand apps added to Programmable Web’s MashUp directory, 270 of them tapped into the Google Maps API, nearly 200 tapped into Twitter’s, and nearly 100 tapped into Facebook’s and YouTube’s each.

Each of these is extremely valuable to search and show that the industry is targeting these sectors and so should you as a business.

Community Connections can help your business with all aspects of  Local Search and Social Media.
