Google My Business

The easiest thing you can do to help people find you, besides having us build your website (get your quote here) is to claim your Google Business listing.  Google indexes all business listings, but it, of course, starts with them.  If you’ve ever noticed that awesome sidebar that shows up when you Google a business, that’s we’re talking about – it’s easy to set up and will greatly impact your SEO.

Your Business Profile appears right when people are searching for your business or businesses like yours on Google Search and Maps. Google My Business makes it easy to create and update your Business Profile—so you can stand out, and bring customers in.

  3. Enter the name of your business and click Next.
    Note: You can also select your business from the suggestions that appear as you enter information.
  4. Enter the street address of your business and click Next. You may also be asked to position a marker for the location of your business on a map.
    1. If you manage a service-area business, follow these extra steps:
