You’re missing out if your business does not have a Google My Business listing. With Google handling more than two trillion searches a year, and nearly half of those having local intent, it’s safe to say that having a local presence for your business is huge.
And that all starts with getting listed on Google My Business.
Local consumers are increasingly searching online for shops, grocery stores, restaurants, car dealers, realtors, and other businesses in their local area.
According to Google, four out of five people use search engines to find local information, like a company’s business hours, address, phone number, online reviews, busy times, and more.
Have You Taken a Look at Google’s Local Listing Platform?
Google’s new listing platform “Google My Business” has replaced Google+ Local and Google Places; instead, you will use Google My Business to manage your search, Maps, and Google+ account all from this ONE convenient location.
Getting a local business listed on Google My Business (GMB) and other online directories is one of the fastest and easiest ways to get a local business to start showing up for local search results on Google.
