Google Favorite PlacesSchrock Innovations received a letter last week that our Lincoln Service Center has been selected as one of 100,000 “Favorite Places” on Google.

The selection was based on how many people have sought out information about Schrock Innovations on Google.  That information includes reviews, requests for driving directions, and general search data.

Contained within the letter was a window decal for our Service Center as well as some statistics about how local Lincoln, Nebraska Google users were seeking out Schrock Innovations over the past 6 months:

  • An average of 14 people a month request driving directions to Schrock Innovations (pretty nice considering we are on one of the busiest intersections in Lincoln)
  • There were 942 requests for specific information about Schrock Innovations (coupons, reviews, etc.)
  • The majority of users who look into Schrock Innovations are looking for computer repair services

Gooogle Favorite Places is a sub component of Google Local Business Center.  I was unaware of this program until Google contacted us to let us know we had been selected.

If your business has not been selected, you can apply for consideration by signing up for and completing an entry in Google Local Business Center.

    Congrats on the recognition from Google. I guess being in the tech sector helped achieve this selection. I had not heard of Google Favorite Places, but I would think it would help send a bit of extra business your way.

    Hahahahah! Excellent! It just goes to show that Google can even teach old dogs new tricks! I wonder if there is one single person on this planet that actually knows exactly what all the little tricks are that Google are hiding up their sleeves. Congratulations on this accolade nevertheless, Thor!

    Schrock seems to be interesting new tool. Every time Google puts something new I’m becoming to wonder – will it really be something good and useful or just a piece of technological crap?

    Congratulations. Whenever google recognizes some aspect of any site, it is a satisfactory feeling. Just like when it upgrades too, say on PR! On the other hand, when the downgrade takes place, the reverse takes place.
