Claiming Your Google My Business Page
In part 1 we wrote about the importance of claiming your Google Business Page, the why and the how-to’s. If you haven’t read it yet you can read that blog here. By now, hopefully, you have claimed and verified your Golf Business Page?!?
Getting Started With Your Google Page
There are a few useful things you can do right at the beginning to make your Google Page more valuable to the consumer (your customer) and help your organic SEO. Here is a brief list of ideas that can increase your organic ranking:
- Add photos (gain an edge on your competitors by enhancing your listing). Note: Make your page stand out anyway possible.
- Use Google Posts (they are a great asset to promote events, highlight products or offer specials). Note: Google posts can be used similarly to a blog but reside on your Google Page.
- Encourage Google Reviews (the more reviews the better your page will rank). Note: Be sure to respond to both positive and negative reviews to further increase your organic reach.
Yes this is another task to add to your list (or to someone’s in your organization). But by even taking just the time to set up the listing in the first place and to make sure it is accurate you will already be helping your Google ranking.
