• Why Google+? Google Maps!


When a customer is looking for a local product or service, can they easily find your business?

Google’s search engine isn’t their only traffic driver. Google utilizes the power of Google+ to help users find anything and everything from the top-rated restaurant on Madison Avenue to the closest real estate office in Silver Spring, MD.

Help the Search Engine!

Havinga  Google+ page for your business helps you get found by customers searching for your services. Business owners can apply for a business page to provide the information Google needs in order to place you on the map.

What do you need for a solid Google+ account for your company?

  • Business Page – A verified business page displays your business for relevant searches
  • Address – Your updated location allows Google and customers to find you and put you on the map
  • Services – A comprehensive description of what you offer tells the customer they’ve found the right business and should give you a call!

Enhance your Google+ Page

Make the most of your business page! Leverage the Google+ features to your advantage, including:

  • Pictures
  • Reviews
  • Comments

Remember, Google’s goal is to give people answers to their search queries. A Google+ business page can increase your online visibility, and provide the search engine with the basic information necessary to get your local business found on Google Maps.

Without a Google+ Business page, you cannot be found on the map!

As Jennifer Slegg noted last May, the fact that review information like this is becoming immediately available to users puts a lot more pressure on business owners and public organizations to list themselves on Google+.”

The stronger your Google+ presence is, the better chance you’ll have of getting a related mention in Google Maps.

So where do you start to get found on Google Maps? It all starts with Google+.
