Do You Have a Results-Driven Google My Business Listing?
In today’s digital world, a local business without a Google My Business listing is the same as not even having a phone number. At Rocks Digital, we create Google My Business (GMB) listings to help a business get found in Google’s local map pack and Google Maps for their products and services. GMB claiming and optimization is an essential part of SEO.
It’s pretty safe to guess that at some point, you’ve probably searched for a local business on Google and encountered a GMB listing. The listings you will find are most likely optimized for search. They include information such as the business’ contact information, business hours, website link, products and/or services, reviews, plus a map reference. This is the result of the creation of a Google My Business listing, and the optimization of the business’ GMB listing.
Top Google My Business Creation & Optimization Services
A Google My Business listing can be an excellent customer acquisition tool. But there is a stark contrast between a basic GMB listing and one that has been optimized for search. Here’s a test: Conduct an industry-related search for businesses in your area. Take an inventory of the GMB listings that surface.
Google My Business listings without a business description, images, products and/or services, GMB posts and questions and answers are hugely unappealing to searchers. Conversely, optimized listings are eye-catching and encourage the searcher to look closer.
