What is Google My Business Page?
Google My Business gives you the capacity to list your business area on Google Maps and nearby local search results.
You can show information about your business, including the opening/shutting times, contact telephone number, or a link to your site. Google has just added another element that lets you add a link to articles or future events.
GMB (Google My Business) is free and a must for all businesses. If your business is online and you don’t have a physical address, you should still consider having a GMB page.
Improve Your Businesses Local Search Visibility
Setting up your Google My Business listing is one of the simplest and most effective ways of setting your business up to be found online. More and more search queries are becoming geographically specific, and Google’s algorithms have been developed to consider user intent.
You’ve probably done a Google search in the last day or so looking ‘places to eat near me,’ then you’ll notice that Google returns a list of three locations where you can eat based on your current location. The three businesses that have shown as a result of your search query are one step closer to attracting you as a customer.
If these places to eat did not have a Google My Business Page, then they would not have shown. Think about this in the context of your business, whatever product or service you may be selling. How can local searches benefit your business? As Google makes regular changes to its algorithms, if you want to get found in local search, you need to have a Google My Business listing, and optimizing it is very important.
