Google Maps Marketing
As the internet continues to grow, and businesses are now being found online more than ever, having an online presence is crucial to your business’s success. Google is the search engine king, and most SEO tactics are based around their ever changing standards and algorithms.
One of the most vital tools in getting your business online and ranking is a Google My Business Listing. When a business sets up a Google My Business Listing (GMB,) it allows the business to be shown in their local areas search listings, streamlining the steps in which a person takes to find a business, products, or services. It is an extremely powerful online tool for businesses and better yet? It’s completely free.
Businesses with complete listings on Google search results are 2x as likely to be considered reputable.
A Google My Business Listing appears as a small profile on the right side of the screen when you search for a business, product, or service. When set up correctly, it will display an image, a map with a pin showing your location, your hours, phone number, website, etc. The biggest advantage of a Google My Business Listing is the advantage it gives you in local searches.
As of 2019, Google processes about 3.5 billion searches a day with nearly 76% of searches have local intent. While simply setting up your GMB is a step in the right direction, you ultimately want to be in the Google “3-Pack” “Map Pack” or “Snack Pack.” All of these terms simply refer to the top three Google My Business Listings that show when a keyword is searched.
