The importance of Google Places cannot be understated. A Google places listing is a critical piece for any small business venturing online.

Google pulls data from sources such as Super Pages and other third party providers, Yelp, Four Square, Directory Listings and many others giving high placement to those putting the time to setup their entire web presence.So just what is involved in setting up your Asheville Business Web Presence? Here are just some of the areas you need to have correctly optimized to win the search battle among your competition:

Business Name, Phone Number and Domain Name

This may be obvious but you need a business name, phone number and a domain that NEVER change and will be the backbone for your local area business. Name, phone and your domain name are the glue that holds everything together. Choose these wisely and keep them forever. Contact Us today for help in choosing the best domain name for your business.

Testimonials

Not only a great way of engaging your customer base, but now a critical step in bringing new customers through your door. With the surge in popularity of smart phones, you need to be able to be easily found not only in iPhone searches, but in voice searches and in the vast number of location based apps.

Directory Listings

Local Search is still a very fragmented environment with new and older directory based services like Yelp, 4Square, etc offering more social elements like reviews and check in services. Your specific industry will have traditional directory listings as well. These are critical since they reinforce your presence with Google and other major search players.

Link Campaign

How many websites have links to yours? This is a key element in any long -term marketing program to increase the visibility of the business’s website and to keep your site ranking higher in Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.

What is Google Places?

Google Places is a free, local search directory, similar to the Yellow Pages.

According to Google: “97% of consumers search for local businesses online. Be there when they’re looking for you with Google Places for business – a free local platform from Google.”

Google Places can be one of the most powerful forces in your Internet marketing if you help it reach its full potential. If you are a local business, make sure that you take hold of this opportunity to help your business grow.
