Reviews are beginning to crawl into search results
Reviews can be extremely keyword rich
Reviews are play a part in Google’s search ranking factors (amount, average rating, sources)
Reviews now play a large part in how consumers choose a business to work with…
Could be a competitor….can you afford to not know what is being said about you?
Why should you care?… “REVIEWS”
Consumersnow have the ability to
post a review virtually
anywhere & share information
about your business & their own experiences in
an instant. Even while they are
still in your establishment…
Didn’t have this problem 8 years ago…
1. Do you have any negative reviews?
2. Do you have any reviews at all?
Do you know where your business listings are?
Do you know what’s on them? Reviews?
Any of these websites or social media sites could have your business information listed on it.
Everywhere your information is listed online is a potential opportunity for a new customer to view it.
Bad reviews, wrong phone #’s, outdated information is a bad first impression for a new customer - bad SEO.
Web directory / local search ecosystem
But wait, I get reviews but why is the accuracy of my
business listings everywhere online important?
Google wants to use businesses in their results that have multiple business listings.
Google can see the number of times & places that your business is listed around the web.
Google then cross references these listings for accuracy.
Google is a robot – it simply identifies these listings, which is why these listings all need to
be exactly the same.
When you have an incorrect business listing on the web, Google doesn’t know what is accurate
and what isn’t? So instead of taking the risk, Google may not use those business listings at all.
Many online directories use listings from other major websites so if one major website directory listing
incorrect it can populate several other incorrect listings increasing the chance that
consumers looking for your business get the wrong information. – loss of potential sale
Search is not just about being “at the top” of
Google…it must now include popular opinion! -
think of your last vacation…
Google & Siri can even rank by
So are you being proactive & asking these questions?
Do you know what customers are saying about your business?
Do you know where things are being said about your business?
Is the information about your business accurate & consistent?
What makes you stand out to new customers vs. your competitors?
How do you keep those new customers?
How do you grow relationships with those customers?
Where do I start?
So how can you grow your business listing’s visibility?
