One of the easiest and most effective ways to get more visibility for your business at Google is to use one of my favorite FREE Internet marketing tools – Google My Business (formerly Google Places, formerly Google Maps).

In addition to increased visibility, a Google business profile makes it easier for people to connect with your business using Google search and Google Maps.

Based on my experience, a properly set-up Google business profile also has a huge impact on LOCAL SEARCH.

A Google business profile at Google My Business is also an important part of your overall search engine optimization (SEO) strategy.

Action

If you haven’t already claimed your Google My Business account do that this week. Don’t wait. Remember, the more Google knows about your business the more favorably it will look at it (i.e. trust).

Take 20 minutes to completely and accurately fill in your profile information – that’s all it takes!

If you already have a Google business profile at Google My Business, take a quick 10 minutes to review it. Is the information accurate and current?
