instagram url to photos

Many businesses today are solely run online without a brick and mortar location. That leaves many without the value of utilizing location targeting with their social profile locations. An example of this is Google+ business pages. If you don’t have a physical address or location, you’ll need to create a branding page vs. a local page. Not having a local page means you don’t show up that easily on local searches within your area.

There is a quick way on Instagram to overcome that.
