    Very interesting topic is going on here. Placing US telephone number on my site gets US traffic seems very interesting thing.

    (It is, but I just didn't realize the phone number would be a factor.) Very interesting!
    I would also put the local phone number on the homepage and perhaps in the footer as well as the contact page.

    Here's a good article that I found about On-Site Geo-Targeting and Local Search Optimization | Search Engine Journal that talks about other geo-specific details like pricing in local currency, working hours based on local standards and time zone, dates in the local format.

    Hi,

    I like the idea but I can't see putting my ph # on the website. I can only imagine the calls I would be getting. Not good

    To buy a extra phone # for a site would add an extra expense.

    I do know of a company that has about 300 people working for it 24hr around the clock doing nothing but answering the phone and taking orders. You can set up any number and when dialed it is forwarded to them and they answer. This would be great if you are into e-marketing.

    But for a normal site

    This one also get me. Direct from their post.

    Make sure to add your local phone number (including area code) to your contact details and home page.
    Yet however this site does not have this info on there home page. They do however have there info on the contact page. No phone number however.

    The post makes very strong points. But why should we listen to this SEO blog who don't follow their own advice?

    Adding a phone number is useful for a site that is providing a service or selling goods. It wouldn't be useful for a publisher that would gain nothing from answering the phone.

    The phone number helps geo target a website in my experience.

    The SEO blog doesn't need a phone number. But a phone on the website would help service providers like webdesigners and CPAs.

    Well, I listed a phone number I registered with Google Voice on my blog.
    (PM me if you want a free invite, I think I have 3 left or something.)

    Sure, it's not necessary or even important. I doubt anybody reading my blog would want to call or text me - but if they do, I welcome the opportunity. I think of it as just another way to establish a report with readers and keep the door open for feedback and advice.

    Hi,

    Yes but your male.

    I worked in a lingerie store I had the Store name, address and phone # of the store on the site. I ended up with a freak stalker in the store. And it was not fun. Enough said.

    I honestly hope you do not live through my experience.
