Google Places and SEO Marketing

Google recently updated business listings across all Google properties (i.e. Google, Google Maps, Google Places, etc.), adding more accurate, up-to-date information supplied by business owners. An email was sent to Google Places users announcing the update and requesting that businesses edit any incorrect information in their listings, in order to assure “the best possible experience for business owners and consumers who use Google and Google Maps to find local information.”

Creative Media Alliance has a few important tips for businesses that update Google Places information. CMA Search Marketing Services optimizes and manages business listings with cutting-edge keyword research that helps our clients rank higher on all search engines, including Google. Search optimization is the best way to secure an advantage in Internet marketing and CMA specializes in optimal online marketing.

Tips for Better Business Listings

  1. Optimize your business title and information.
  2. Include keywords in your Google Places page description.
  3. Submit complete information and include photos and videos, if possible.
  4. Build citations. Citations are “mentions” (or, as we like to call them, “buzz”) that help your business rank well.
