Importance Of Google My Business?

What is Google My Business?

Google My Business, is a free and important tool provided to local businesses by Google that allows you to promote your business in Google Search and Maps.

At South West Web Design, we recommend setting up a free Google Business account with Google as soon as you start a business, as with this, you can connect with your customers, post updates to your Business Profile directly on Google and encourage potential new customers to contact you quickly via sending you a message, calling you or visit your website where your new website can sell your business further.

Google My Business has become one of the most critical avenues for local businesses to have in their arsenal to promote themselves via the Google search results working in hand with a traditional website via the organic search engine results. Additionally with a Google profile, you can promote your products and services, gather reviews which can be displayed on your site and answer questions.

After a potential customer completes a Google search, your Google My Business listings may appear below the paid ads but most importantly may appear above the organic search results for websites, videos and other pages if your website SEO optimisation matches the search criteria. This means if your Google My Business listing is in the top 3 results or "local 3 pack" as its known then it is very likely many potential customers for your business will click on your listing to get more information about your company.

Having a Google My Business account and claiming your business listing lets you show up in search results for FREE when people are looking for your services online. Because of this, it is vital that your Google My Business listing is fully optimized.
