Did you know that using Google My Business is a part of getting your website top-ranked at Google?

Now you might be saying; “Chris, what does Google My Business have to do with search engine optimization (SEO)?”

The answer is EVERYTHING.

Especially if you want to show up for “local” searches and on Google maps.

Keep in mind that “local” listings often show up above other listings on a Google search engine results page (SERP).

Did you know one of the most popular searches at Google is what is known as a “near me” search?

Here are some examples:

  • bridal shops near me
  • hardware stores near me
  • best prices for new mattresses near me
  • oil changes on weekends near me
  • bicycle trails near me

If you want to rank for “near me” searches your Google My Business page plays a critical role.
