Question: Isn’t your area implied with the search such as Notary because the search engine knows your location?
Answer: Yes and no. If I do a search just for ‘pizza’ then Google shows me local Pizza restaurants. A search for ‘hotel’ does the same. But if I am traveling to New York city, I am going to quickly realize I need to search for ‘New York Hotel,’ so these are really DIFFERENT searches. In some cases, you want to optimize for one (usually through Google Places or AdWords) and in some the other. There is really actually quite a lot to this question.
