5 Ways to Further Optimize your Google My Business Listing


By: Patricia Poblete


When was the last time you optimized your Google My Business (GMB) listing? According to LSA Insider, 56% of local business haven’t claimed their GMB listing, while those that have, haven’t fully optimized it or forgot about it. In spite of the fact that 82% of people use search engine to find local information, many GMB listings remain unclaimed and unoptimized.

Why?

A study from Brandmuscle found that 57% of the listings are self-managed by local businesses due to reasons such as lack of resources and guidance. Fortunately, it’s never too late to start optimizing your GMD listing. Since new features are ever-so-often introduced, there are always new ways to optimize your GMB listing further. In doing so, Google is effectively pressing all local businesses (whether their digital marketing is agency-managed or self-managed) to regularly monitor, change, and update their GMB listings.

In recent months, Google My Business has been undergoing pivotal tests and changes, transforming the nitty-gritty parts of GMB. Thing of this as Google trying to take the best parts of the soon-to-be shuttered Google+ service and integrating them across their platform. GMB is not just a place to poke around for basic information, proper management of a listing has become an integral part of any local SEO strategy. In 2018, Google introduced dozens of new features to help refine data clutter and enhance user-experience, changing the way users search and browse content online. Google is showing information more than ever before, giving users less reasons to click through websites and different accounts. Hence, the announcement of Google+ shutting its doors wasn’t exactly a complete loss for the company as it doesn’t hinder the accessibility and function of other Google platforms, such as GMB. In fact, the exit of Google+ doesn’t affect your local business’ SEO. Instead, the exit of Google+ allowed for bigger opportunities to come about, allocating some features of Google+ into different areas of other Google platforms, such as GMB’s Google Post (which we will discuss later).
