Rarely is anything concrete, and sometimes info feels contradictory to best practices or what SEOs actually see in their work.

Did you know that 93% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations? If someone uses the Check-In function on Facebook when they visit your business, they are telling their friends on social media that they are currently at and enjoying your services or products. This results in free advertising, increased brand awareness, and is essentially an endorsement from that user. That’s why the more check-ins you can garner on social media, the better!
