You might have noticed that you now can add an extra filter - location type:
Before this update, every address we found on a business' website was considered an address of the business. This created situations where one business was mainly based in a country, but also had other smaller, secondary locations in other countries. So it came up in results when searching for both the "main country", and the "secondary country", which created some inaccurate search results.
Until now, Soleadify treated all the addresses as having the same importance.
Well, we changed that, and now we identify three types of locations, and you can use that to refine your search:
This will keep the old system of Soleadify. It will search through ALL the locations found on a business' website. Returns the most results, but it's the least accurate.
Based on a number of factors (number of occurrences, the page where it's found - i.e. homepage, contact page etc.) we identify one address as being the main location of a business. This returns fewer results than choosing "any location", but it's more accurate
Will look for businesses that are based in one location only. Local results. For example, if a business has two offices - San Francisco and Los Angeles, it will not appear for the search "only location - San Francisco", but might appear for the search "main location - San Francisco". But if you search for "only location - California", since both cities are in California, this business will appear in search results. This will return the lowest number of results.
How to use it
By default, just like before, we will look for "Any location"

Then you can select the type of location Soleadify searches for. You can hover over one of the location types to understand what each does:
