Google Maps / Local SEO
Marketing Depot is a leading SEO specialist and can help you with your local SEO and Google Map needs. We encounter companies who have lost access to their Google map listing, who don’t know where to find their Google map listing or simply don’t have a Google map listing…and we have helped them all.
Why Do I Need A Google Map Listing?
For so many, many reasons. First, having a Google Map listing allows people to know your business name, phone number and where your actual business is. Your Google Map listing pops up based on proximity so if you are near the searcher, you will show up. If you aren’t there, you are losing business!
Secondly, the map listings are sometimes ranked by star ratings. We highly encourage you to ask each one of your clients to leave 5-star ratings (if they feel inclined) to help with your local SEO in Google Maps. You should also be responding to any 1 or 2 star reviews. Even if your customer wasn’t happy, the person reading the negative review only has one side of the story. Tell your side but be courteous and give factual, non-emotional information.
What's New With Google Maps?
Besides moving from 10 listings in the SERP, they have moved to 3. But, if you are here looking for help with Google Maps you probably already know that.
Google has added something new to it’s Google Maps and we recommend doing it. You can now add your cell phone number to your map listing and customers can text message you with any questions they have about your services or to book directly with you. And not many people are taking advantage of this! Jumping on this new update could give you the competitive advantage you are looking for!
