There is a site that can shoot you right up on the pages of Google and the best part, IT’S FREE. What! yes it’s free. Google Places is the place you want to be. Here’s what Google says about Google Places.
“97% of consumers search for local businesses online. Be there when they’re looking for you with Google Places for business – a free local platform from Google.”
So here’s what you need to know, it’s super easy. Go to Google Places, sign up! Then start filling in all the information, the more you fill out the better. One of the good things about having this site is ratings, if you have a brick and mortar store/business you can ask for reviews from your customers which is also a great way to get hits from Google. Did you know Siri uses ratings type sites to recommend places.
Don’t have a local business, you can specify a service area and hide your actual business address, for those of us who work from home.
Using Google Places will also help you to learn what people are using in search engines to find you, this can come in handy when you are optimizing your site for search engines.
Not on Google Places, don’t want to hassle with it, we can help, hire us to do it for you, it’s a quick affordable solution. Call today, 567-202-0054 or email Erin @irishis.com
