It’s called Google Places, it’s more powerful than Yellow Pages for local search … and its FREE. As promised in my last post “This video is a must if you are in Business” I want to share how to get your business not only on the first page of the google search engine but to the top of it when anyone is googling your industry, your service or your product in your town or suburb.
A ‘real live’ example is the search term:
‘Web design in Gympie’.
As you can imagine, it’s very important for our business that when people are searching online for a website designer (that is what we do) in Gympie (that is where we are based) that we are on page one of the search results. Setting up our Google Places Page it took just 5 days to be ranked #1 out of 139,000 possible search results for the search term ‘web design Gympie’. Actually we have the top 2 spots for that search term. The only thing better than one search result in the top 3 positions in Google is two search results from a double ranking.
Using google places, the A3 listing also comes up #1 for the search terms – “IT Consultant in Gympie” and “Online Marketing Consultant in Gympie” , because that is the way it was set up.
The exciting thing is that you can do the same thing for your product or service in local search. With a little time and effort you can do it yourself …. if you are so inclined. If not contact us and we will help you set up your businesses Places page.
The short video below has stories from small business owners who are using Google Places to grow their businesses in their local area. The stories are from business people in the USA, but it works no matter where your business is located.
