The REALS about not claiming and using a Google My Business (GMB)?
GMB listings show up ahead of websites in search returns.
You can’t SEO your page to leap ahead of a GMB listing.
GMB listings are uniting to create Google’s version of Linked In by allowing your to “Follow” a business profile on their GMB listing.
Failing to claim a listing and contribute to it once a week could be catastrophic. Only one listing claims the spot on screen for mobile users, can you afford for it not to be you?
Add GMB to your content generation schedule. You can create a cover image, add your logo. List your hours, your phone and even your website. Upload almost unlimited images, and post as frequently as you wish. The recommendation from Google is a fresh post once a week.
Create and post lists, tips and tricks of value on your industry and Google will reward you by promoting your content as “Snippets” in search returns. Yes, it is another demand on your time but its a relationship with the owner of 97% of search. Accept.
