Increase Local Rankings with Google My Business!

Leslie Tan     19 February 2019




Google My Business is one of the best tools for appearing in local search results.

Today I’m going to share with you three methods for optimising your listing so that you can gain an advantage over your competitors.


Step 1: Claim and verify your listing.

Verifying your listing tells Google that the information about your business is accurate and up to date, which can positively affect your rankings.


Step 2: Encourage and respond to reviews.

We encourage you to ask customers to publish reviews about your business. Customer reviews build trust and can play a large role in your local search rankings.


Step 3: Publish Google Posts.

Google Posts allow businesses to publish content directly on their Google My Business listing. You can use Google Posts to promote events, promotions or your latest news.

Give these a go and maximise your online presence!
