How Can I Rank Higher On Google Maps?

When someone searches for a business near their location, Google will find local results through Google Maps and Search. Ranking your business higher on Google Maps is attainable, but it takes patience and optimizing your web presence for Google to recognize your business. Google’s algorithm might choose a business further away from your location because that business appears to have what you are looking for. This is why optimizing and building your web presence is so important.

Google My Business

To establish your business on Google Maps, you must claim and optimize your business through Google My Business. First, optimizing your business helps ensure your name, address, and phone number are accurate and up to date. You can also post linked content through your Google My Business, list your services and products, and add photos of your facility.

Optimize Web Presence For Local Organic Searches

To rank higher on Google Maps, you first must ensure your web presence (website and external content) is optimized for your local audience. Service area pages help increase your presence in areas you provide your services to but might not be located in, and this increases your potential of appearing on Google Maps during a search. Another way to optimize your website is by adding a Google Map on your contact us page or location page on your website. Google will often cross-reference these details in hopes of finding your website in other local directories and resources.

Reviews, Reviews, Reviews!

All businesses can create a Google Business Page listing, which should provide your viewer with the basics of your business, such as name, address, and contact information. Another item that can be added to your Google My Business are reviews. Reviews will help your local business show up on Google Maps. Google pays attention to the quantity and quality of the reviews left for your business. The last thing Google wants to do is recommend a company with low ratings and a poor web presence on Google Maps. If you do encounter negative reviews, quickly deal with them and resolve the issue. If you want to increase the number of reviews, you should add it in your following email or actively ask your current customers to write one!
