Google’s ‘My Business’ listings dominate local search results, and since your competitors are already there, we want you there too. A verified and optimized Google My Business (GMB) (Google Local) page consolidates your online business presence to one easy place.
Outside of your traditional website, GMB is a listing, like the old Yellow Pages that gives a snapshot of your business, except this listing does so much more (and we have found a way to make sure we can promote it ahead of the rest).
Utilizing algorithm data, organic keywording, quality score rankings, citation links, and much more, CPM promotes your Google My Business. Once started, your local based business is now managed by a dedicated, in-house CPM Google ‘My Business’ Digital Specialist. GMB now works as a direct connection to your customers, whether they are searching for you through Google Search or Google Maps, they’ll find your business with ease.
Don’t just take our word for it. CPM has received an amazing 5-star Google rating from our clients.
For Google local SEO, it’s essential that you take advantage of what Google has to offer. One of the most important parts of local SEO services is to create a Google My Business page. Google My Business uses Search, Mobile Search, Desktop Search, Google Maps App, and Google Maps to make your business more visible.
The good news is that your listing is free and means your business details will appear in local searches. Getting your business to the front page of searches is the real challenge! As such we strongly emphasize that Google My Business should be a cornerstone for any local SEO campaign.
Your first goal should be to make sure you have an optimised Google My Business listing in place. Using GMB also means that you’ll be added to Google maps which shows potential customers the exact location of your business. Remember your business will only appear once you are verified, hence it is important to verify your business with Google first.
You may be surprised to learn that you probably already exist in the Google My Business directory, but have you claimed your listing? When it comes to Google, the more detail the better, that is why we recommend that you add in a long description of your business and triple check that your address and contact details have been entered correctly. Additionally, we recommend that you upload as many relevant photos as possible and focus on getting positive reviews from customers.
For local SEO, it’s all about NAP – name, address and phone number. Consistency is essential and you need to focus on both the quantity and quality of your NAP details across the internet.
Citations are any reference to your NAP details on other web pages and examples include Yelp, online directories, blog posts and any other forum where your NAP details are featured. It’s essential that the NAP details for your business are accurate across the board. At CPM we make it so!
While there are many ranking factors involved in your GMB listing and your keyword rankings, Google Reviews have been identified as the latest version of word-of-mouth advertising. The more reviews the better your ranking! CPM can help you get more positive reviews consistently and show you proven strategies to help those coveted 5 Star reviews!
You never know what a potential searcher is going to input into Google to find what they are looking for. Now more than ever, Google is focusing on Geo-location-based search results related to keyword search intent.
For any business, the front page of Google is the most sought-after position for their industry specific terms.
