Hawaii Google Plus Local for 2012

  1. 1. Hawaii Google Plus Local for 2012Donald D. Dolenec, CEO Hawaii SEO.SEMinfo@ HawaiiSearchEngineOptimization.netOver 70% of internet traffic is expected to come from mobile devices bylate 2012. Your Hawaii Google Plus Local page is set up to show upproperly on people cell phones, which will give you access to thisrapidly growing class of customers. Most of your competitors, eventhose with sophisticated websites are probably not set up to be viewedproperly on cell phones - a real advantage to those who are wiseenough to take quick action. Hawaii Google Plus Local can help yourbusiness get listed on Google Plus Local.
  2. 2. For businesses serving their local market, advertising and reaching yourclients has gotten easier - at least for those savvy enough to takeadvantage of the huge marketing gift Google offers through its GooglePlus Local service.It is remarkable is the fact that Google Plus Local has essentially createdpages not only for those businesses who already have web sites, but formillions of businesses that dont have a web presence. The trick thoughis to claim your web page and, once claimed, to get them to appear inthe search results for your local market.Hawaii SEO | Hawaii Search Engine Optimization | Hawaii Web Design
  3. 3. Claiming your Google Plus Local site is easy, yet staying on top of thelocal market requires some extra steps. Start by filling out yourcompanys information as completely as possible. Get testimonials fromother sources and get reviews to maintain top positioning.For most businesses, the initial challenge is to get their businessinformation to the 100% complete level. Since less than 20% of allGoogle pages have been claimed so far, you may already find yourbusiness already on the first page of Google. If your business is notalready on the first page, you can significantly increase your chances ofgetting there just by claiming your site.As more and more businesses claim their sites, those who do the bestjob of completing their information are likely to be ranked higher thanthose who only do a partial job.If you fill in just the basics that include company name, street address,city, town, state and zip, plus your main phone you will get credit for40% completion. Adding your website and email address adds another15%. If you dont have a web site, set up a Squidoo page or even aFacebook fan page and enter its URL for your companys web sitebecause your sites address is worth 10% so its important to get a webaddress of some sort. Its estimated that as many as 50% of smallbusinesses do not have a web site.
  4. 4. Entering any type of description of your business adds another 5%, butdont strive just to get the 5%. Provide enough information to let yourprospective customers know what you can do for them.Ensure you add hours of operation, even if you dont really have hoursof operation, since you get an extra 5% for that information. Youll getanother 5% for setting any of the payment options too.All of this is straight forward, yet Google and its users love pictures andvideos. Youll find space for 10 pictures and they want you to use all tenslots to get full credit. So get out your digital camera and take picturesof your logo, your front door, yourself, your staff, your product,yourself at work or what ever. Clearly the more business and value-related these pictures are, the better they will convert your prospectivecustomers into paying customers.Your photos dont have to professional, studio-quality pictures, yet thebetter the image, the better the impression. This rule is also true forthe last big hurdle: video. Add one video to get full credit - your videocan be as simple as a quick video made using your digital camera orphone, to something more sophisticated like a power pointpresentation that outlines the reasons someone would want to dobusiness with you.
  5. 5. Finally, there is a place for additional details - entering a one linestatement adds 6% to your completion score.Your first objective is to claim your site, followed by filling in detailsabout your business as much as you can. Go back and improve thequality of the content next.
