Google Listing Optimization

Everyday consumers are searching online for products and services nearby to fulfil their immediate needs. They are searching on Google Maps and Apple Maps, asking their digital assistants and devices, checking out on their smartphones and social media. You might be losing customers when they are searching for you if you have inaccurate business listing. This trend has made Google My Business the leading tool for business owner to stand out among competitors when prospects are researching and discovering.

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.

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