What is Google My Business
Formerly known as Google Places, GMB is Google’s web-based directory consisting of local business listings. A typical listing contains a variety of information pertaining to the business, including its name, address, phone number, hours of operation, popular times, average time customers spend at the business, website address, customer ratings, reviews, and more.
GMB listings appear in multiple places, including Google Search and Google Maps. Most local search terms trigger GMB listings, also known as The Map Pack, at the top of the organic results.
When managed properly, your Google My Business listing is the fastest path to rankings and traffic for your business’ Local SEO campaigns!
How WARank Managed Google My Business Can Help You Grow
To maximize your local business’s exposure on Google and its affiliated properties, consider WARank professional digital marketing agency to manage your business’ GMB listing.
A digital marketing agency can help you achieve a higher ranking for your GMB listing. So, when a prospective client searches for a product or service offered by your business, they’ll see your GMB listing at the top of the search results. This is important because Google only displays a few GMB listings on its actual search results page. A poorly optimized listing probably won’t rank in this coveted digital “beachfront” real estate, resulting in less traffic for you and more for your competitors.
A professionally managed GMB listing can also build stronger brand recognition for your business. They will update your listing with branding elements like your logo, color scheme, and staff pics to help customers remember your business and what you offer.
Finally, a digital marketing agency can track key metrics of your business’ Google My Business listing, including the number of calls it generates, requests for directions, website visits, user-uploaded photos, and more. These are just a few reasons to consider hiring WARank Digital Marketing to manage your listing.
