RI Local Search
The best way for local businesses to get to the top of page one in the google search engines is by local search. Did you ever search for a business, for ex. like a real estate attorney in Warwick RI and notice in the search results that websites come up with a map? Not only with a map of your business but with your name, address, and phone number too like this: James J Caruolo Law Offices 33 College Hill Rd, Warwick, RI 02886 (401) 828-7100.
These are the local listings, if you are a local business, this is where you need to be.
Did you ever wonder how business get their listings in those Google maps? You can sign up here – https://www.google.com/business/, it is called Google My Business. It used to be called Google places or google places for businesses.
Google will have to verify that your business is legit, and they have a few ways to verify this. They might send you a postcard, or call you on the phone number that you give them. They will supply you with a code that you will use to verify your listing.
Optimize your local search
Once you have an account with “Google my business” you now have to optimize your listing. There are many ways to do this, one of the most important thing you can do is to sign up on directory websites.
I am a seo specialist and I have gotten many of my seo clients, including Victory Medical Spa, in the top three map results. Remember, seo is a slow process, it can take several weeks or months to climb to the top of the “Google my business” search results. There’s no better time to start than right now! Though I have seen results in a matter of a few weeks, there’s no telling what Google will do, Maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones.
