Store Locator Plus is kicking off 2017 with a notable revision to the user experience tools available in the map and location finder application. Store Locator Plus for WordPress has long employed “Plugin Styles” as a way for users to jump-start their custom look-and-feel for the locator on their WordPress site. With the recent release of the My Store Locator Plus SaaS service it was obvious that a modern system for deploying updated styles was going to be needed.
Store Locator Plus 4.7.3 is replacing the static CSS-file based styling system with a cloud-hosted style gallery. This will allow the user experience team at Store Locator Plus to deploy new styles without having to wait for the R&D team to design and test a new version of the application before a new style is available to the users. Our design team can now assist all Store Locator Plus users that are having styling issues and provide them with a faster turn around for one-click fixes to their locator interface issues.
WordPress users have long known about the Store Locator Plus® plugin. Five years later it is closing in on the half-million downloads mark and is deployed on over 14,000 active sites today. It has become one of the top-rated and most-downloaded map plugins for WordPress thanks to the extensive feature set and regular updates.
My Store Locator Plus® now brings its full-featured locator service to Squarespace. The recently-launched My Store Locator Plus service builds on the years of experience behind the WordPress offering to create a “drop and go” option for all websites. Any Squarespace theme can easily deploy a custom-tailored locator by using the embed feature. You can read more about that process and follow the video on our Squarespace Integration support page.

We’ve written articles on Google Search metrics and the Near Me phenomenon now that everyone is mobile. In the “Near Me article” we highlighted the fact that most people search for things near them when they travel. The most common “near me” search is restaurants. This is the companion article of our research on the top travel destinations in the US.

Like golf, the lowest score wins. Add ranking of top 10 on all sites. If un-ranked on a site the default score is 15. Any entry must rank at least 10 or higher on one of our sampled sites to appear on the list. Destinations must be a city not a region.
