Google My Business (GMB) is one of the most important optimisation tools that can help your business to appear and rank higher on Google Search and Google Maps. With a GMB Account, you get more than a business listing. You can easily connect with customers across Google Search and Maps.
The majority of all search queries with local intent e.g. “plumber Lancaster” (particularly when completed on a mobile device) generates a local pack of results for your search. Creating and optimising a Google My Business profile for your business won’t necessarily ensure your business will rank well for relevant searches, there are many factors which influence this, but proximity i.e. the distance the searcher is away from your business is a very important factor in the algorithm, so it makes sense to have an optimised GMB profile!
Setting up your Google My Business (GMB) listing correctly is an important first step in every businesses local SEO strategy. It’s something that we recommend everyone does, no matter what size their business is.
