If a Google users device (mobile phone, Desktop PC etc…) is logged into Google and/or they’ve allowed Google access to their location, the searcher will get local plumbers near me Google results instead of general plumbers near me results.
As a plumber learning SEO it’s very important to understand Google can generate local search results, what you see when searching “Plumbers Near Me” isn’t what a potential customer 10 miles down the road sees.
For example when searching Google for “Plumbers Near Me” from Skegness in Lincolnshire, Google doesn’t list the plumbing directories (Rated People, MyBuilder, Yell etc…) MAIN pages for Plumbers, but the area that’s close to my area which tends to be Boston in Lincolnshire (~20 miles away).
If a user visits those listing they instantly see plumbers from their area (or reasonably close to it).

You can see from the 5 examples from each directory the plumbers listed are very variable. None are replicated between the three directories, also shows there’s a LOT of competition in the Boston area for plumbers and Boston isn’t that big: the Borough of Boston population around 65,000-70,000 people.
Take into account I was in Skegness (20 miles from Boston) when I made the Plumbers Near Me Google search, so if I were looking for a plumber I’d have not been happy with only Boston plumbers and would have narrowed the search. I’d probably search Google for “Plumbers Near Skegness” and go from there.
