Google My Business and Google Maps

The #1 step dss solutions 18 can take to improve your search engine ranking is to claim your Google My Business page and optimize for Google Maps.

In traditional parlance, a Google My Business, or GMB, page is akin to an ad in the Yellow Pages. More than a phone and address listing, the ads give more detailed information about a business such as: business hours, a map for easier locating and perhaps even a featured product or product line. According to Seven Ages Design, “The information in the knowledge panel exhibits the backbone of what GMB offers: quickly found and easily digested online business profiles. It’s easy to understand why getting this information to potential customers is important”.  

A Google My Business page in an online, free business listing that lets you easily connect with customers across Google Search and Maps.

To maximize your potential of being seen, your GMB page should include the following information:

  • Ensure that the NAP (Name, Address and Phone Number) on your website matches the NAP on GMB.
  • Apart from your physical address, the NAP should be consistent with the actual name of your business, and it must be the same wherever these details appear online.
  • More specifically, you should use an exact template for your NAP wherever you use these details – whether it is on your website, Google My Business page or other websites and directory listings.
  • Make sure you have provided as many details about the business as possible.
  • Make sure all information is accurate, especially the NAP.
  • Verify the business if it has not been verified.
  • Update the business hours.
  • Add the company logo (geo-tag the logo).
  • Add as many high-quality geo-tagged photos as possible.
  • Actively manage and respond to reviews.
  • Gather keyword optimized positive Google My Business Reviews.
  • Write keyword optimized Posts and keep posting!

Through your business’s GMB profile you can track clicks, calls, follows, reviews and even handle bookings to see how your customers engage with your Business Profile.

To get seen in Google Maps your business needs to be listed in Google Sites. Here you can:

  • Provide an additional avenue for prospective customers to communicate with you by adding a “Contact Us” page.
  • Provide driving directions to add to your business’s local authority.
  • Link to “Authority Sites”.

Optimizing your Google My Business profile and creating a listing on Google Sites is not just a one-time thing … it is an ongoing process that helps lead your business to the famed Google 3-pack!
