Google My Business lets you offer your clients or customers a thumbnail of who you are, what you do, and where you can be found. You can include photos of your business, customer review rating, physical address, phone number, and a link to your website, among other vital information.
Then your business is one that comes to the top of the page–with your location on a highly visible map–when people Google the information they need. For instance, if you own a computer repair shop, when prospective customers ask for “compute repair shops near me,” a map and other essential information pops to the top of the search results page.
If you haven’t filled out your free profile, it’s your leading competitors who show up when the query is made, not you. To start your profile today, go to google.com/business to claim your company.
