Are You Up to Date with Google My Business?

In June 2014 Google amalgamated Google Places or Google Local with other Google apps into a new service called "Google My Business".

And it's a lot more powerful than ever - so you definitely need to have an optimised listing and work it if you want your business to be found online.

When you "claim" your listing or add your business, Google My Business will add your business information to Google Search, Google Maps and Google+, allowing customers to find your business on desktop and mobile devices. You can add photos and virtual tours, get reviewed by your customers and include business information like address, phone, opening hours and more.   When properly linked up to your website and other Google Apps - the benefits really start to kick in.

My Business listing properly and you'll really stand out from your competitors in search results.

The new service also pulls in custom insights and integrations with AdWords Express, which will help you better understand how people are finding your business on Google, what they’re clicking on, where they’re coming from when clicking on directions, and other trends over time.

Google Insights provides useful info about visits

The insights are designed to give businesses more information about their Google+ audience and content, including visibility, engagement metrics, and demographic data.

Even if you don't have a depot or office location, I still recommend adding your business to Google My Business. Use your registered address (your accountant) if you don't want to use your home address.

If you want help doing this - no problem.  We will do it all for you.  We can help you claim your listing, optimise your listing, setup your Google Plus page properly and design a Google Plus Cover page to complement your business.
