Of course, I mean a “smokin’ hot internet connection”.
Late last week, I was heading north through western Missouri, I planned to make an overnight stay in the Kansas City area.
Knowing full well (though with a little jealousy) that Kansas City, Kansas was the first winner of the Google Fiber lotto, I thought it would be nice to stay at a hotel in KC hotel that offered Google Fiber.
So I searched for “hotel kansas city kansas google fiber”
While there are plenty of search hits about Google Fiber, most were stories about Google Fiber’s choice of KCK and deployment in the area. The only thing that even comes close to a hotel room in the search responses is a story about a “Home4Hackers“, an AirBnB property that offers Google Fiber.
Either there are no hotels in the Kansas City Kansas area that have Google Fiber (a distinct possibility), or the ones that do offer it need to work on their search engine positioning. A simple Google Local entry would have been first in my search, if it existed. Simple. Five minutes work.
What are people searching for when they look for you and don’t find you? Have you asked them when you meet or speak with them?
Finally – be sure you’ve taken care of your local listing on Google and Bing.
