Why have a Google My Business Page
A Google My Business page increases the opportunity for customers to find you online as part of both an organic search and on Google Maps. This is particularly useful for local businesses. Potential customers can see quickly and easily where you are on the map, your opening times, phone number and website address.
Google openly say that having a Google My Business page will increase your rankings. Even if a person doesn’t type a place for a search, Google will be able to find a result based on what it knows about that person’s location. Secondly, there is an increased trend in the use of voice recognition software. People are speaking to Google to ask for local services, such as the nearest Italian restaurant, or bicycle shop. Having a Google My Business page makes it far easier for Google to find you on the map when a voice search is done.
Here are some of the factors that ensure your Google Business Page performs well:
• Ensuring all your information is up to date and correct. Accurate information will help your ranking and enhance your presence on google maps and on search/organic rankings. All of the available information of your business on the internet is aggregated by Google and therefore it is important that the information you provide is accurate across the board.
• Gaining citations. These are links from local business directories to your business and Google sees these as further validations of your business.
• Reviews of your products or services. Reviews are great for providing social proof and gain the trust of prospective clients. Good reviews will increase your click-through rate and this signifies to search engines that you are a trustworthy business.
• Photos humanise your business and share its story which engages your audience.
