Today’s Quick Tip….
Want to quickly find a local organization’s phone number without having to first find their website and then search for their “About” or “Contact” page?
You can almost always go straight to the page containing their phone number with a quick Google search.
For example, one of my favorite local restaurants is the Pizza Inn in nearby Abingdon, Virginia.
I know the area code for this part of Virginia is 276 so I can quickly find Pizza Inn’s phone number with this simple Google search:
pizza inn abingdon va 276
Once I press the “Enter” key Google will work its magic and display a page of search results, nearly all of which will have the Abingdon Pizza Inn’s phone number listed in its search result snippet.
And now, one last hint… This works with street addresses too.
