Google Listing Management

With millions of businesses to choose from, Google has developed a sophisticated algorithm that is trust-score based on a number of scoring factors such as proximity, reviews, and NAP (Name, Address, and Phone) accuracy. In other words, Google has developed an automated scoring system that determines the trustworthiness of a Google My Business listing. For local businesses, Google My Business has become increasingly more important over traditional local SEO, where the results are out of view. Google My Business optimization is more cost efficient than other forms of local internet marketing while delivering massive returns on investment.

What does the term trust score mean and how does it work with Google My Business?

Google My Business clusters local business listings into one group and scores the accuracy of the business listing data in the cluster.

Aside from the two paid advertisements above, you will see that the Google My Business listings are more visible. Those Google My Business results are ranked based upon NAP accuracy, proximity to search, and reviews.

How can optimizing our Google My Business listing help?

With yellow page advertising near or at least completely gone, local businesses have become dependent on Google to help them find a local plumber or restaurant. With Wifi access pretty much wherever you go, it has become much easier to find a business on Google than to search through the pages of a local phone book or directory. Today, Google users have become accustomed to finding a local service at the top of the first page of Google’s initial search result. This has empowered Google to become the 700 pound gorilla of local search.

The number of daily local searches on Google has increased dramatically and so has the interest of America’s business leaders.
