Have you claimed your FREE Google+ page?A Google my business page or a Google+ local page is a free platform provided by Google. Most businesses will have one of these pages, but the question is “have you claimed it”?
These powerful local business pages are often overlooked by businesses. Claiming your business page provides an opportunity to manage the content you wish to be displayed to potential customers online, by allowing you to input business information, upload images, provide contact information and trading hours etc. It even allows you to send traffic direct to your website.
A Google my business page is absolutely FREE and visible to consumers in your local area searching for the products and services you sell. Claiming your page is essential.
Did you know that 40% of all Google searches are local or location based? So why does your location matter?
- Local searches are highly relevant when consumers are looking for products and services close to where they are based or for a particular location search.
- Local searches or location-based searches are the most important queries you can hope to win. Your business will rank on the first page of Google in the map listing area, with a pointer on the map showing your exact location. This makes it extremely easy for the consumer to find you.
- Smartphone technology has made it very easy for consumers to find the products and services they are looking for in their local community. The top results are being pulled from your Google+ local page information. Conversion rates are very high amongst smart phone users, these people are not window shoppers.
Investing time in developing the content on your Google+ business page can result in improved local search visibility. This is especially important for small to medium-sized businesses, which rely on the locals in their community to support their business activities.
