Optimising your Listing

Once you have your listing formed and you have verified it following the instructions given, you need to improve your listing by using GMB optimisation techniques. Having a listing is one thing; now, it has to be improved and filled with valuable, informative content.

However, it has to be verified first, this can be either done through receiving a postcard to your business address in the post , or occasionally a phone verification method will be offered . Once that happens, we can work together to help improve and optimise your listing. We’ll look to deliver on the following updates as a minimum:

  • Include more content, such as articles and blog posts, to help boost engagements and give people valuable information encouraging them to take part in using your business.
  • Add in more details about your business and the people behind it, humanising your business and its staff.
  • Include key business features such as opening hours, key services, and location features.
  • Try and always add in both a company image of the location, and some other images of your company at work. Images can help to boost click rates by over one third.
  • Include a cover photo. This should be a photo showing your business at its best. Try to find a natural photo of your business in action.
  • Videos are great for having an impact on your visibility and how likely people are to return in the future. You have a 30s limit, though, and it must be 720p resolution or higher.
  • Boost reviews by responding and replying to any reviews that your receive. It can be good to address unhappy reviews and thank positive reviews for their feedback.
  • Add your business to the relevant primary and secondary categories available within Google My Business. This is a key ranking factor so its best to leave it to the experts.

Google My Business has its own App

Do you prefer to work using a mobile device? No problem. All of this can be done through the Google My Business app, which you can download on both iOS and Android devices. We recommend doing so, as it will allow you to do anything apart from delete your business listing or give your business listing over to another user/company.

We can arrange a discussion to show you our ideas for what could be done to make your business stand out from your competition in both its appearance and exposure. Our aim is create a professional Google My Business listing that is full optimised using our techniques in order to break into the Google Local Map Pack which is where the calls, clicks and email enquiries will start to happen, and continue to happen all the while your business is at the top of Google Maps.

We changed direction of our business back in 2018 and became more specialised in what we offered our customers. This required a fresh start when it came to our local SEO as we were now offering a different service and wanted to attract customers out of a geographic area. I came across Local Search Gurus and the rest was history! 2 years on we appear in the top 2 of Google for all of our target keywords in 8 towns where we never appeared before. We now get a healthy number of leads on a weekly basis. This has allowed us to cancel the Google adverts were were paying for as we now get all our leads through the city/town pages that were created for us.
