Optimizing your company’s GMB listing can boost your SEO and help your business rank higher in other searches, like Google Maps.

Additionally, there are options to add posts to announce events or expand the information about your company such as adding a question and answer section. There are many things that must be done to properly optimize your Google My Business account. 

Getting Started With Google My Business

​All information must be accurate on every listing. The name, address, and phone number are especially important. It is also necessary to prevent duplicate listings and provide as complete a profile as possible. You must update your profile rather than create a new one.

Regular maintenance is required for your GMB listing because Google allows users to update information. It is important to review these updates to ensure that all information pertaining to your business remains accurate.

Users are also able to provide answers to questions, so you must read those regularly to make certain that the answers are correct.

    1. Hi JMR,

      If you aren't appearing on Google My Business then the first step is to make sure you are verified. Google will send a postcard to a physical address, and often immediately approve online-only locations. Next, make sure it's completely filled out. Anything they allow to be filled, make sure it is. Next, post regularly on GMB as this too will help you rank. You can even get more advanced by using a Google Website to support your GMB listing as well.
