Google My Business and SEO
What do you do if you want to find a business? Or want to shop for something online? You Google it! Google is the most popular search engine which plays a crucial role in the success of their business having a presence in front of potential customers when they search online.
How can you as a business owner improve your chances of being found on Google by potential customers? Google My Business is a free tool that can help your business rank higher in search results, providing potential customers with all the necessary information they need about your business.
Google My Business gets your business off on the right foot by taking your details and organizing it into a visible template on the right-hand side, known as the Knowledge Panel, once your potential customer hits that Enter button.
By setting up Google My Business correctly you can:
- List your business’s name, address, and phone number.
- Have a geo-marker on Google maps to highlight your location.
- Display photos to showcase your business in the best light.
- Display customer reviews: great for potential customers to determine
whether your business is the right fit for them.
- Give any further details relevant to visitors looking for information.
Google My Business makes your business instantly more accessible to potential customers too. Potential customers can easily click ‘visit website’ or ‘call’ from the Knowledge Panel on the right. Making it easier for customers to book with you, will always give you a distinct advantage over your competitors.
Have you ever driven to a shop only to find that it’s closed? Frustrating isn’t it? But with Google My Business, you can enter your Business Opening and Closing Days and Hours so that your customers are always well informed. You can even enter Public Holidays ahead of time on Google My Business.
