BETTER: How to get more local business from your web-presence.
When was the last time you “Googled” your business? Or your type of business? Where do you rank… and more importantly, where do you rank ,specifically in local results? Would you do business with you if that was your first exposure to your business?
Google Places, represented by the red markers on Google Maps, is the behind-the-scenes function integrated into Google Maps that contains detailed and relevant map search results, which also populates on a “regular Google search.” This is what you experience when your out driving through a neighborhood and do a quick map search from your smart phone for a local coffee shop within reasonable proximity to your location.
This is an example from a desktop showing how Google Places bridges Google search results to Google Maps…
… Do we really want to make it sound this easy for them to do this themselves? Should we lose this slide?.... One of the most important things to recognize is most Google Maps searches are done from mobile devices or smart phones by users out-and-about and ready to make a buying decision. This dynamic can make Google Places the most critical part of a local businesses SEO strategy.
The foundation for an optimal Google Place page is having a good volume and consistency of citations. For better or for worse, citations can come from nearly anywhere or anyone, whether positive or negative, so having an aggressive approach to managing citations across the web can both optimize your Google Place page as well as defend your reputation.
Is your business so accessible that traffic, not even prospects, can accidently become customers? LMF makes it easier for your current and future customers to do business with you.
