In general, the invention relates to methods and systems that facilitate the discovery of business locations of interest to a user and record visits of the user to those business locations. A network includes a server programmed with a database of location information and a database of user information. Sometimes, users may not realize that businesses of interest are nearby. Businesses of interest be selected by the user using a button in a web page or on a mobile phone. The business location is put into a list of business locations associated with the user. The next time the user is determined to be physically located near a business of interest to the user, a notification is sent to the user's mobile device. The system may determine if the physical named location is subsequently visited by the user.
