Maps Optimization with Google My Business

Google My Business is essentially a tool for businesses to manage their presence on Google – including Maps. If your information is verified through this tool, your business will be twice as likely to be considered reputable in the eyes of consumers.

Listing Creation

To get started with Maps optimization, we’ll set you up with a Google My Business listing. This step will include offering information such as:

  • Address

  • Business Category

  • Phone Number

Even if you already have a Google My Business listing when you come to us, we’ll look it over to make sure that everything is set up perfectly.

Listing Verification

Once your listing is created, it’ll be time to move to the verification process. Other than improving your credibility, this step will prevent anyone else from posing as your business on Google.

We’ll have Google send a verification postcard to your business, which you should receive in about 14 days. It will contain a unique verification code which will be entered into your Google My Business account.

Listing Optimization

This is the step that allows us to use our SEO expertise to optimize your created listing through keywords, images, and a business summary.

Important Maps Optimization Elements

Consistent NAP

NAP stands for name, address, and phone number. It’s important that your business information is accurate, and to that effect, it’s also important that it changes if it needs to. If for whatever reason your NAP changes, your Google My Business listing needs to reflect those adjustments.

Reviews

If your business and other local businesses are tied in terms of optimization, it’ll be reviews that set the winner apart from the rest. That’s right! Beyond reviews looking good for your business, they help your search ranking as well! When everything is always a tight race in the world of SEO, it’s important to jump at every small detail that could impact your ranking. Google looks at both the volume and average rating, so we’ll help your business gain the reviews you need to improve your standing with Google Maps

Domain Authority

This is a numerical score given to websites that is based on an estimation of their search rank. The score will always start out at one if your website is brand new and can be brought all the way up to 100. We will use this score to determine the performance of our optimization. If it’s lower than expected, we will take that into account and reevaluate our strategy. Here are some factors used to determine domain authority:

  • General SEO performance

  • Social media popularity

  • Quality content

FAQS

How Long Will It Take to See Results From Maps Optimization?

The results coming from optimizing Maps for your business will generally take about six to nine months to be fully realized, however this can be less, or even longer, depending on numerous scenarios that could be out of your control – such as competition.

It may take less time if your business is unique in your area, and it may take more time if your business was previously poorly optimized.

For brand-new businesses, it will typically fall in that six to nine-month range, but if everything falls into place perfectly, three to six months is a possibility.

Can I Buy Reviews?

Yes, but we don’t recommend it at all. Buying a bunch of glowing reviews might seem tempting to improve the look of your business online, but it can really hurt your credibility and customer trust. It’s best to always handle SEO legitimately, because doing it any other way can come back to bite you later.  

What is Domain Authority?

Domain Authority is a score assigned to websites based on how they’re predicted to rank. We use this tool to help us improve our link building strategy, so you’re always getting the most return for your investment. New websites start out with a score of one, which can go all the way up to 100.

Is Google My Business Necessary if I Have a Website?

Yes! Google My Business is meant to work alongside your website to generate leads. You can even add your website to your listing, so people will be able to easily access it when your business appears in the search results.
