I am getting mixed opinions about this guys. Should I bother to use "near me" at the end of kw's for local services so like "Plumber near me"?

Some are telling me there is absolutely NO reason to use those words within my content or tags since google will automatically show all local listings first, is this accurate or not please?

Well, that is the opposite of what everyone else is saying Colan.

Also I had thought about exactly what you said, to make it sound natural but cannot think of any way, would you be able to share just one example with me please?

Thanks but not understanding. if I type just the word "Plumber" on google it shows "Plumber near me" so I would naturally choose that option. If I were to have in my tags and content "I am an affordable plumber nearby", would that make me show up for plumber near me?

Thanks again Joy, I can use the word "nearby" but simply cannot find a sentence with the word near me, not even my 2 content writers seem to able to write content with these 2 words making it sound natural.

Maybe you could try adding something like ”Searching for plumbers near me?” to your content. Then add some text after this so it makes sense having this written on the page.
