Braindrop: Local Listings Cleanup

  • Transcript

    Does your business have multiple locations? Learn how cleaning up your local listings can benefit your business.

    When potential customers search for your business on Google, does it show up?

    Google uses multiple factors to determine what local businesses appear in the "Map Pack." And that includes your Google My Business listing.

    Wait, what's the map pack? In short, it's the first three locations Google displays based on relevancy to the search query.

    If you want to show up for "Fitness Studio Sioux Falls," but your data is inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistent, you may be less likely than your competitors to appear in these searches.

    There is power in claiming, correcting, and optimizing your listings.

    So you might be wondering, where do I start? Finding NAP consistency amongst your online entities is essential. NAP stands for name, address, phone number.

    Scan your website, Google My Business listing, and Facebook page to ensure these three components of your online profile match up.

    If there are any inconsistencies, determine a standard and update.

    For example, if your Google My Business listing shows 300 N Phillips Ave. Suite 110, your website and Facebook should match, even if the difference is as subtle as 300 Phillips Avenue Ste 110.

    This will improve the health of your locations on Google and enhance your rankings against competitors.
