Google My Business Optimisation
Google My Business Optimisation aka Google Places / Google Maps / Google+ Business / Google+ Local.
Google is forcing business owners to use their Google+ platform by integrating it with Google My Business, hoping that customers will follow in droves…not a great strategy for competing with Twitter from the big guns at Google, but it does have an impact for business owners and your online visibility in the Maps and Google My Business.
What does this mean for small business? There are a few things that you need to take care of – housekeeping.
- If you don’t have a Google+ account, create one now. You can do this in the same interface as your Google My Business listing.
- Once you have created your business Google+ profile, upload an image and a tag line.
- Then call on all customers that you currently have and go after their precious +1’s as these are now a substantial ranking factor for visibility in the maps.
