Google Places Optimization
Why Google Places Matters to Local Businesses
When it comes to attracting local customers, Google Places Optimization can be even more critical to your success than search engine optimization for your main website. The reason is that Google recently changed its search display layout to emphasize the top 7 local listings for a (city + keyword) search. Because most of your potential customers will see your Google Places listing before your website, you need to make sure your local listing is well positioned compared to your competitors. If you start to fall behind here, you will notice more and more potential customers diverting to other companies as more people turn to the internet to find local businesses every year.
Improve Your Google Places Ranking and Effectiveness
The good news is that Google Places is a free tool and is much simpler than building a website from scratch. However, just like search engine optimization for your website, there are several unique steps required to make the most of your Google Places listing.
