Take Control of Your Google My Business and Map Listings

You need Google My Business services to keep up with the fast paced changes of Google’s local listings. It can be hard to keep your business on top of its A-Game. What does it take to get a good local listing and maintain that ranking? 

Boost Your Local Presence with Google Business and Map Listings

Did you know that 46% of searches have local intent?

We know big box retailers are very hard to compete against. But, if you are a local business, there is a huge opportunity to tap into new customers who are specifically looking for a local solution.

Google My Business (formerly Google+ and Google Places) is an excellent starting place to establish your local presence and attract local search traffic. The competition here can also be fierce as many businesses are competing for the same #1 map or search listing as you. That’s why we offer Google My Business services, so your local listing can effectively compete for those coveted top placements.

Call us toll-free at 1-888-262-6687 to get started. Our Local SEO experts are ready to help you maximize the value of your Google Business and Map listing.

Why You Should Care About Google My Business?

  • Engage with customers on Google for free.

    Any and every business with an address can claim its Google business listing for free – don’t be one of the 66% who haven’t yet! Take advantage of the opportunity to be shown in Google. Why would you leave your listing unclaimed or out of your ownership?

  • Get noticed in Google Search and Maps.

    Google My Business services will help you take control of how your business shows up in Google search and Maps results. Your potential customers should see the most up to date information about your local business.

  • Show off your local business with images and reviews.

    People like to know what they are getting – adding quality images about your local business helps set their expectation and build familiarity. As well, great reviews helps to increase their trust in your brand and likelihood they will choose you.

  • Add a new source of significant monthly lead generation.

    Many clients with prominent and well-maintained Google My Business profiles and Map Listings generate a significant flow of new customers each month right from Search Results. Our Google My Business services provide an excellent supplement to SEO and Paid Search traffic – make it a part of your Digital Marketing Strategy.

  • Gain valuable SERP real estate above conventional SEO listings.

    For searches with local intent, Google will often first show a handful of local business listings. When optimized, these listings typically get higher click-through-rates and attention from local searchers – particularly from those on mobile devices.

  • Connect with your customers in new and convenient ways.

    Google My Business services can provide new ways for your potential customers to engage with you. Right from your business listing, customers can request a quote, get directions, visit your website, call your location, send a message, view special offers, and more!

  • Gain insights about your Search presence and local customers.

    Once you’ve put all the effort into improving and maintaining your Google My Business listing, you can see valuable data on how your business appears in search and how customers connect with you. You can track trends and growth in your engagement over time.

  • Promote your business with featured posts in Search Results.

    Share exciting news like a special event, great sale, new staff member, or anything else you desire. The post stays active in your Business Listing in Search Results for one week and can attract serious clicks and traffic to your website.


SEO & Google My Business Services

Google is always adjusting the minor details of what you can and can’t include in your business listing and what is prominently displayed in your listing. The following items have consistently remained among the top items we optimize through our Google My Business services.

Correct Business Information

The basics are often the most important. Is all the information included in your Google My Business account correct – from proper category placement to accurate hours to correct address and phone number? Incorrect information confuses both your customers and Google.

Exciting High Quality Images

Are you showcasing your local business with the best images possible? Google likes to see businesses adding images of their exterior, interior, staff, brand, products, and more. It’s like giving customers a accurate peek into what to expect once they visit you!

Resounding Reviews

Great reviews – one of the most influential decision factors your potential customers are looking for. They are also indicators to Google about your reliability and customer satisfaction. Positive and steady review growth is important for an active and effective local business listing.

Established Local SEO

Over the last several years we have noticed that local businesses that focus on proper SEO strategies also naturally see their Google My Business listing results improve. As with most other things in the industry, doing as many things right as possible leads to the best synergies and results.
