Local SEO is more powerful today than ever as more consumers use search engines to find and connect with local businesses. Hence, if your business is not ranking prominently on search engine result pages (SERPs), local consumers will be more likely to purchase from your competitors and not you. One effective way to ensure your business is visible to consumers is by optimizing your Google My Business
Google My Business is an interface that lets business owners manage how their business looks and performs throughout Google’s products and platforms.
It lets you find out and adjust how your site shows in Google+, Maps, the Knowledge Graph, and organic search results. GMB is the biggest driver of local SEO success. According to statistics, over 97% of consumers look online for local businesses. Therefore, it is crucial that you invest in professional Google My Business SEO services to be as visible as possible to your target audience.
Why is Google My Business Optimization important?
Optimizing your Google My Business increases the chances of your business showing up in Google’s Local Pack, Google Maps, Local Finder and organic rankings. It helps Google understand more about your business: who you are, the services or products you sell, where you are located and what your website address is; allowing it to crawl it for more information.
The more Google Knows about you, the more types of searches your GMB listing will appear in.
Usually, when people search your business name, Google displays your knowledge panel alongside your website links. Now when Google knows more about your business and what you do or sell, it can help match you with other types of search queries that are relevant to what you do with the most relevant being Google’s 3-Pack. Once you make it to the local 3-pack Google will show users where your business is located on Google maps.
Your site will also be showcased at the top of search results before the organic results, giving you a 700% boost in clicks over brands that do not make it to the local 3-pack. The benefits of Google My Business are threefold:
• Increased visibility in searches • Better shopping experience for buyers • More traffic to your website, front door and social channels
How Much Does Google My Business SEO Cost?
On average, GMB SEO costs between $900 and $1200 per month depending on your business needs, your competition and your geographical location.
