If you’ve been trying to get your online presence figured out lately, there’s a good chance you’ve run into the concept of Google My Business.
However, if you’re not familiar with the world of websites, online advertising and local SEO, you might be wondering what this is, and how to set up Google My Business. Let’s answer both of those questions.
Google My Business is a service offered by Google that allows local businesses with a physical presence to claim their listing on Google Maps and link their business to in depth information on a business page. You can also link your Google My Business listing to your website, and the Google My Business program allows businesses to get reviews online.
It’s a very valuable tool for SEO, especially local SEO, and it’s one of the first things you should do if you run a local business, and you want your website and business to appear in more local search results.
If you’re not involved in any kind of internet related business, it might seem like a bit of a mystery. Most things are quite complex, and there’s all kinds of terminology that doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense. The good news is that Google My Business is not one of those things, and it’s actually really simple to get set up! Here’s how:
Just claiming your business or adding it to the Google Map is a good start, but there’s a lot more you can do with the service too.
Add pictures of your business or products or upload a logo. Respond to customer reviews and ask your clients to leave more reviews about your business. You can even add email addresses and contact numbers, so it’s easy to reach you.
Spend some time exploring your Google My Business account once you’ve done the basics and add as much information as you can to your profile. It never hurts to have more of your information online!
