Did you know that one out of five searches is location related? Creating a listing on Google Places is a quick and easy way to make sure your company appears when consumers come looking for you. And, it’s free.

The importance

The advantages of listing your company on Google Places are endless, but here’s just a few:

  • It’s one more way to up your SEO
  • Phone books are quickly becoming a thing of the past. When people start looking for your service or product, they head to the Internet. Google Places will make sure you appear in their search.
  • If optimized correctly, your Google Places listing makes your business show up on the the first Google page.
  • Mobile users can find you more easily, too, in the palm of their hand.
  • You don’t actually have to have a location to advertise your business.
  • It’s a great place to have your consumers write a review.

How to sign up

It only takes a few minutes to sign up. Go to Google Places and click “Get Started.” The site will try to find your company by phone number. If it’s not found, you can manually enter in the information and location.

Share your business hours, photos, videos, address, website and any other information that will attract consumers.
