What is Google My Business & Google Maps
A family of four is deciding on a restaurant for Sunday night dinner. The kids are having a hard time agreeing before the parents settle on a local Italian restaurant. They search the location on Google Maps and begin driving there. When they arrive, the restaurant looks dark and unpopulated. The family realizes the restaurant is closed!
Where was that information in the Google search?
When users Google search or look up a business on Google Maps, they expect relevant information in return. Google My Business is an online platform that holds the most essential information to improve your local seo footprint.
Your business listing will be positioned as an “upgraded profile” that will include a badge appearing on the listing which may also appear in the Local Pack results.
Adding your service business to Google My Business can seem redundant. After all, you already have a contact page, a listed address, a phone number. Google knows how to crawl your site and list that information without you having to lift a finger.
What more could you need out of your Google listing?
It turns out there’s a lot more you can do to optimize your presence on Google for services—even when someone simply types in your business name.
