    finding number of searches for just metro are
    Happy New Year Everyone....!!!!

    Quick question. Is there a way to get number of searches for
    a keyword or niche in a local area. Lets say 30 mile radius from my business.
    This would let me know if I should be looking to market online...because
    I plan to visit my customers.

    Moderator Note: I'm assuming you're talking about using something like Google AdWords, where you can target to a metro area, so I've moved your post to the PPC Search Engine forum.

    I wouldn't worry too much about quantifying it. Take whatever you can get.

    Just set up an Adwords campaign, target it to the area you're interested in, and bid on all the phrases you can think of. Try to think about what people are looking for, not what you're selling. For instance, if you sell a carpet cleaning service, "carpet cleaning" is certainly one thing you should be bidding on, but don't miss "remove stain from carpet", "carpet stain", etc.

    Thanks guys. By the way what is B&M..?

    My worries were that there would not be enough volume in senior market but I will take your suggestions and test for myself. Thanks again.
