{Study} Location Based Services & Customer Opinions in Europe: How Do Consumers Rate Local Businesses?

Linking social networks, geolocation functions and mobile technologies today presents marketers with dramatically new challenges: customers can now, on the spot, comment on a service or product, rate it and quickly share it on social networks. And even more: search engines, especially Google, meanwhile in their algorithms, the user feedback as well as the location-based information of great importance. A trend that will become even stronger in the future. Reason enough to investigate in a comprehensive study: How and, above all, what do customers say about location-specific information? Company ?

Background to the study

Nomao, a European regional referral search engine, has evaluated well over 100 millions of posts from Internet users across five European countries from the 9 millions of sites it searches on a daily basis.

Which social networks are used for this? How often are comments made? Which expressions are used? And finally: What is the content-related tendency of the comments?

The results of the study

In the five largest European countries, eight times more comments were made about local businesses within four years. This figure will increase further in the coming years, for several reasons:

  • More and more people own smartphones: between 2010 and 2011, the number of smartphones increased by 44 percent.
  • More spread of apps on phones2: More than 1 million apps were 2011 in circulation.
  • Creation of ever-new Internet favors on niche markets such as Yelp or tripadvisor.

  • 40% of all places annotated in the European Internet refer to gastronomy.
  • The accommodation sector is average with 12 opinions the area that is most commented on.
  • A place in the UK has an average of seven opinions: twice as much as other countries surveyed.

European internet users prefer to make benevolent recommendations, not to publish negative or harsh reviews Criticism to practice. The type and
The way to describe a location differs depending on the origin of the user:
