Create & Optimize Your Google My Business Listing
It Really Matters! Whether your business is local (brick and mortar) or online, your business listing is important to your Google SEO results in search and maps. Having this listing also tells your site visitors that your information is up to date.
Google has created an easy to manage, online tool to allow you to share your business information, website, contact, messaging, hours, events, posts, photos, advertisements, reviews, and even build a web page hosted by Google if you need one. An active listing is always a plus as it’s a way to showcase your business to those who are searching but might not visit your site.
Want more benefits? A GMB listing is a great way to improve your website SEO rankings, boost engagement, gain more visibility and trust online, increase your sales, as well as start to build a foundation that will allow you to capitalize on new Google offerings to small businesses.
