Google figures show that 4 out of 5 mobile searches are to find products or services in the immediate vicinity. It means that people Googling with their mobile are looking for immediate solutions to specific problems. They are hungry for example, want to go shopping or need a haircut.
The action-specific nature of local search queries represents an opportunity for every small business. If your company website is the first one to provide a relevant solution, your product or service will already be half-sold. This is why a good ranking in local search results should be a priority for every SME.
Does Google not rank your business well in local search results? You’ve got some work to do! A clever first step would be to create a page on ‘Google My Business’. By doing so, you are letting the search engine know where your business is situated and what it does and what it sells.
With a Google business page, your information will appear faster in local search results. Either via mobile or from a computer, in Google Search or Google Maps: the right keywords will lead directly to your site. More people will get to know your business, and this will eventually lead to more customers and more revenue.
Have you set up your Google My Business page? This is a great first step. But you can always do better. Below are some tips to ensure your business profile appears in Google more often:
