    I think it does. Because many times people just type in the address of the shop or the office. I think they need to have a map on it too. Since there is a facility to make it easier for your customers to know where you are, then why not use that facility to its maximum potential.
    The other day i was looking for a shop online which i had no idea where it was in a specific market, they had a Google map pinned, which made it easier for me to know where they were.
    So you be the judge now, is it important or not?

  • They created Google Maps for a reason and one reason would be for Google to collect some data about local businesses. It is also tied up on Google Result page meaning it is a must for businesses that want to be seen locally.
