What is Google My Business?

Google My Business is a free tool, that is very simple to use that can let small businesses manager their online presence on Google Search and Maps.

Google My Business listings show up in local search when people are looking for a specific business or type of business on Google Search and Maps. Google has devoted a lot of time an energy developing this to help businesses stand out on search to bring in valued customers. Depending on what device (mobile or desktop) you are using, the displaying of GMB listings could differ. We recommend that you run a quick search on both mobile and desktop devices to see what we are referring to.

Why should my Charlotte business focus on the Google My Business listing?

Most Charlotte businesses don’t even claim the GMB listing but should. A lot of local businesses claim their GMB listing and totally forget they have it. We say put it to use. When using your GMB listing, it can increase your likelihood of showing up in several valuable places such as Google Maps, Local Finder, Google’s Local Snack Pack, and organic search results.

It helps you grab the searchers attention when they are looking online. You can not only show up in Google Maps and the other Google related search locations. You also can display little short ads or posts from social media under your GMB listing (see example below). We truly believe in this since a study found that almost 80% of all searches happens on Google.

What is a Business Directory Listing?

Per Hubspot, A business directory is an online list of businesses within a particular niche, location, or category. One way local businesses can get found by online searchers is through inclusion in business directories.

Why should my Charlotte business focus on online directory listings?

Consistency is key! We believe that along with using GMB, you need to make sure that your business’ information is correct and consistent throughout the internet. If there are any discrepancies found, Google and the other search engines don’t like to give you credit for them aka “link juice”. So working with us we will make sure that your NAP (Name, Address, and Phone Number) are legit in the eyes of the search engines.
