Google Places Listing
It has always been Google’s mission to “Focus on the user and all else will follow.” Google is uncompromising about their users’ experience, and it is only rational that their dogma permeates all throughout their products including Google Places.
Google Places or Google Local, as it was formerly known, is a free to use and set-up ‘premium’ tool that lets you place your business on the Google Maps website that is accessible to any visitors worldwide. If your business does not currently have a website, having a Google Place’s listing is a fantastic way to establish and maintain a presence online to gather both leads and customers.
Anyone can set-up a Google Places listing but it takes skill and know-how to effectively rank your business and dominate your niche.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Applying search engine optimization (SEO) techniques and strategies will help you improve your website’s visibility in search engines like Google and Yahoo through organic or unpaid search results.
What this means is, if someone searches for a service or product that you are offering via Google and your website appears at the top of the search results list, then you are of course going to get more visitors from search engines. It is a fact that most people don’t go to the second and third pages of the search results to visit each site. Often, most people only click the top 5 results.
In essence, applying the right SEO strategies will help you attain top search rankings and we can definitely help with that!
