Maybe you have a website, but do you have a Google My Business page? Some businesses do, but they are not managed properly. Amazingly, some don’t have one.
So what is Google My Business?
It’s a very useful tool to give customer very quick access to high level information about yourself, directly within the Google search results. Details like:
- Google Reviews
- Website link
- Map of your location
- Photos of your business
- Links to other services
- Opening Times.
Customers often click directly on these, rather than in the search results itself.
Sometimes a company sets it up for you, but never makes full use of it – doesn’t add photos, or the opening hours, or other common issues. So how to you gain access to it?
It’s not straight forward, but we have done this for many business. A Gmail account is needed first, then with that account we (or you) can claim that business. We have a managed service that can do this for you, and then we can manage your GMB page, adding photos, adding news stories (for mobile devices), and much more.
It’s a very smart thing to have. It looks really good in your Google Search Results.
If you want to check yours, just Google your business name (not the website address), and if you come up, have a look on the right side of the screen. If you rank ok, it will show your details. See what comes up, and if it’s not what you want, not to your satisfaction, give is a call: 01775 894479, or use the livechat in the lower right corner of this screen.
It forms part of your website’s SEO, this is because it is your Search Results we are looking at, so if you need information on that, do get in touch with us.
