Since more people search for businesses online than anywhere else, it’s absolutely necessary to claim your Google: My Business listing. This will help make sure that your business listing can easily be found on Google Search, Maps, Google+, and mobile devices. Even though it’s a free service, and it’s set up to allow you to enter your information yourself, there are a whole bunch of “hidden” techniques for getting your site to gain the most favor with Google. Plus, this is a never-ending endeavor because Google is always changing the way they look at things!
I have a FREE Small Business Guide To Google Places that you can download HERE that will give you the basic knowledge and instructions you’ll need to get started with Google Places if you’d like to do it yourself.
