Google tells us that at least 50% of mobile phone users searching for goods and services will visit a business they have found within one day of finding a supplier. Around 18% of those will go on to buy.
In hard numbers, for every 100 people that find your business online,
around 50 will visit (or call) you and around 9 will buy.
On this basis, the easier your business is to find, the more visits you will get and more customers as a result. Correctly set up, Google - the number 1 search engine - provides an easy, low-cost opportunity to be easily found and to stand out from your competition. It is an extremely powerful tool for local business but one that is still vastly under-utilised. With a Google My Business listing your business immediately gains a further competitive advantage.
We have a deep understanding of how the Google Maps algorithm works and the factors which are used to determine rankings of Local Business Listings. We also have a few strategies up our sleeves that can help increase you competitive advantage even further. We can help give your business a boost in the Google Maps rankings and guide you on how to continue building your rankings moving forward.

Try This Simple Test
Go to Google and search on a typical keyword for your business.
Note the Google response to your search paying particular attention to;
- The advertising links displayed.
- The search response.
- The map response section
- The details displayed for each type of link in the response.
Note that Google knows where you are and shows relevant listings near you (i.e. your competitors). See how some listings are more prominent and attractive than others? Attractive listings display in the Places panel (with the map) , with website and directions links and with rating stars and links to reviews. These listings are click magnets and boy do they work. With Google My Business, your business will display prominently like this to customers near you searching for your products and services.
Key fact - most of your competitors do not have these attractive features. The opportunity to get a major competitive edge on your competition is yours for the taking with Google My Business.
