Google My Business Optimization

Google My Business SEOGoogle Plus, Google Places, Google Plus Local, Google Places for Business… when will the variations end!? Hopefully this diversity of Google business account information has just ended with the introduction of Google My Business. Google My Business integrates the Google business page, reviews, map stats, insights and analytics into a single dashboard.

Follow the proceeding steps to maximize the use of your Google My Business account!

  1. Visit www.Google.com/Business
  2. Enter your business address (even if home-based)
  3. Click “manage this page” and review your listing. Google may suggest that you add photos in order to consider the listing 100% complete.
    • Note: If the page is already verified, Google will give you a hint about what email address was used to verify the listing so you can followup with that person or log into your profile using that email account.
  4. Google may have also updated your business information based on “user reports and our data.”
  5. Review the changes to ensure accuracy or to make updates.
  6. Google will identify potential duplicate listings of your business. If there are duplicates it is often best to remove the one with the least amount of reviews.
  7. On the “My Business” drop down menu, visit your Google Plus Business page to make sure the information is accurate and complete.
  8. Connect your Google Adwords, Analytics and YouTube Channel from the Google My Business dashboard. If you don’t have YouTube or Analytics setup up. Set them up!
  9. Begin the process of inviting followers to your Google Plus page and post updates on a consistent basis. A social media management tool can help make the process more efficient.
  10. Develop a process to obtain reviews on your Google page
  11. Use Moz.com/local to evaluate and optimize your on-line directory listings.

    “Working with Brian has been one of if not my favorite working relationships. We first met when I started as the marketing director at Bethesda Blues & Jazz. Brian's company, Loebig Ink helped immensely with marketing support in relation to SEO, a new website relaunch, social media & email management, and in depth monthly analytical reports.  linkedin-icon

    “Loebig Ink has been a huge help to me and my business. First I had a website designed by professionals and he made it shine, improved my SEO with fantastic results, and then I designed my own website from scratch which he then did it all over again. Works diligently to make sure everyone is successful, and he truly is a master of collaboration. I can't thank Brian enough for his hard work at helping me make sure I was a success from my efforts on the web. linkedin-icon

    “Brian is very professional and knowledgeable, but most of all I liked the fact that he did not overwhelm me with suggestions; instead, he motivated me with a "small attainable goals" approach. The tasks he gave me to complete were simple but they made a huge difference in my business and the results are incredible. As a business consultant and a social media guru, he has an invaluable wealth of knowledge to share. linkedin-icon

    “I will honestly say that I have no ability in terms of search engine optimization and web development. That is why finding Brian and his company was such a godsend. Just this last week, I had someone call me and say that I had the web presence for hypnotist in Manassas wrapped up. That is in no small part because of Brian's exceptionally good work. He really is the go-to person for creating an excellent website and getting increased visibility. linkedin-icon

    “Loebig Ink redid my existing dreadful website. The difference is night and day! I dealt with Robin, who orchestrated and designed each page as well as the owner, Brian, who walked me through a training session when the website was complete. They both taught me the protocols in making adjustments to the site whenever I wanted. There is simply no question that the new website they created increased both traffic and business. Everything was done at an affordable price and built to perfection. I cannot recommend Loebig Ink enough! linkedin-icon
