Places, Faces and Searching

Posted on the 30 June 2011 by Maria Snyder @MariaConsulting

One of the tools to promote a business online is Google places™ business listings.  My business is a Google place and my listing generates real traffic to my site.  My thoughts often flow to how can I reach out to local business to let them see me, as in HEY I’m over here! My little red Google places™ business listing pin holder that represents my Google place is up to date and has relevant business information, photos, email addresses, phone numbers, and payment methods.  It’s like a mini website.
As a business owner I often think about how customers find me.  I’ve taken great strides to position myself so that my business comes up in searches concerning social media.  SEO is what’s known as search engine optimization.  My WordPress.org content managed site has plug-ins that make SEO easier for me. Independent of that, my other social profiles need to be positioned so that when you search for me, you find me!  Yes you can hire an expert to do the SEO for you and I do know an expert but some optimization tricks can be performed quite simply.

Google places is powerful.  My young children are even trained to “Google it”.  If you are a business with a need toHEY be HERE! I have your solution, it’s Google places™ business listings.
