Below are a few questions Local Consumer Connect is frequently asked questions about local search optimization and our business.
What is GMB optimization?
GMB (Google My Business) optimization is the process of optimizing your GMB listing and leveraging it for more sales. While many companies claim their GMB listing, they tend to overlook the importance of optimization. This is tantamount to developing a website but forgetting to create product/service pages. An optimized GMB listing helps Google find, crawl, index, and rank a local business. This plays a central role in helping your business attract high-quality traffic and build a wide audience base.
We use an innovative GMB optimization process to improve your company’s online presence.
How is Google My Business valuable for my business?
Google My Business makes it much easier for local web users to find your business. By sharing essential business information (name, address, phone number, website, business hours, etc.) and optimizing your listing, you can maximize your chances of appearing in the Google 3-Pack.
The Google 3-Pack displays the top three search results for a local search. Why does earning a spot on it matter? Because the top three search results on Google earn a whopping 75.1% of all clicks.
If your business is listed on the second or third page, your click-through rate will be significantly lower. In fact, 75% of people never scroll past the first SERP.
In a nutshell, Google My Business is a powerful asset for your business. By optimizing your listing, you can easily expand your audience and enjoy high sales.
