Episode 005 – Google My Business for Local SEO

This is the Google My Business for Local SEO episode.  I wrote about Google My Business optimization for Local SEO and the recent updates a few months back.

I noticed that a lot of businesses were still either not aware or not taking advantage of the new opportunities within GMB.  The podcast seemed like a great way to reach more people about it.

 

Show Notes from Episode 005 of SEO Hackerz

Only 3 days late but better late than never. This week we talk about the new features of Google My Business. That not exactly new as I wrote about them 5 months ago but A LOT of businesses are not aware of them yet.

The new features include

  • Posts: Add your specials/promotions
  • Services: A menu style listing of your services (Originally created for restaurants)
  • Booking Button: Allows users to book you right from your GMB listing
  • Messaging: Allows visitors to your GMB listing on mobile to message you from their mobile device.

We talk about why it’s important to check and update your listings accordingly. The perfect example is I thought my description was added but apparently. not. So I added it during the recording. We discuss NAP and also the latest SEO news. Check it all out and join my SEO Community at http://seohackerz.com
