How To Rank High In Google Places/Maps 2018 – How To Rank High In Google Places


business owners is how do I break my Google Maps listing to number one, Google for my specific key term now some people call it the Google map some people call it Google listings some people call it Google Local or Google Places it’s all the same thing we call it a map pack and there are just a few ranking factors that really matter in the grand scheme of things there’s about 32 total ranking factors give you the top view of here today and the number one deal is the quantity of reviews that you get course if they come from an active Google profile that matters and a lot in the eyes of the Google you know is the reviews.
So when you’re speaking about reviews you look at the stars you look at the number of reviews and that’s going to help we’ve got a system that we can actually put in place for your business and it’s a way to send a text to a customer sitting across the table for you we did this because in the car dealer situation you can’t use the same IP address or throw an iPad in front of them and have them do a review on the car dealership because the dealership or the manufacturer will penalize the dealership for that. So we created an app that you’re able to send
01:55
a link across the table to the customer
01:58
and say hey if your experience was good
02:01
today go ahead and click on that
02:03
give us a ranking that you believe was
02:06
fair today and number two is what we
02:09
call citations the second ranking factor
02:12
citations
02:13
basically your business listed in the
02:17
directories around the web like super
02:20
pages yellow pages
02:22
Angie’s List Yelp up the list goes on
02:26
and on and on and you can probably just
02:29
google and open the business like Google
02:33
your name and you can see what you’re
02:36
ranked for or what you’re in a good
02:38
software that we use is called yaks and
02:40
I’ll put these links below so that you
02:42
can actually click on them but next I’ll
02:46
go through all those Google listings
02:48
mash them sink them and get them where
02:51
they need to be because if there’s a
02:53
little bit out of sync in that citation
02:55
like if you have a different address on
02:57
some of them versus another one because
03:00
there’s a lot of directories out there
03:02
it’s gonna penalize your ranking so you
03:05
won’t rank as well as you would if all
03:08
those are consistent or if all the phone
03:11
numbers are consistent and not only that
03:13
I’m not trying to sell you on yaks but
03:15
if you’re close for a holiday you can
03:17
make those changes real quick and it’ll
03:19
affect all the directories so citation
03:23
directories will fill up the whole host
03:26
of sites where you can add your business
03:28
and Google looks at all these
03:30
directories online and they say okay
03:33
well it looks like he’s consistent
03:36
across the board and all the directories
03:38
are the same so he must be credible
03:40
credible so they give you a more higher
03:43
ranking the next thing you need to do is
03:46
to make sure your Google Maps listing is
03:50
verified right so Google will either
03:53
send you a postcard or have you do a
03:56
call and enter a PIN numbers so what
03:59
we’ve always done is the postcard
04:01
because it only takes about ten days to
04:04
get that postcard and it’s a rock-solid
04:08
verification they’re never going to
04:10
question that but you can enter that pin
04:13
number two on the phone and you’ll be on
04:15
the top and get online right away and so
04:20
if you’re at the bottom it’ll pull your
04:22
listing up once you verify and you claim
04:25
your business which shows
04:27
that you’re the owner and gives the
04:29
listing credibility now the next thing
04:31
that you need to consider is make sure
04:34
you have the appropriate category for
04:37
your business so if you’re a
04:39
chiropractor in Los Angeles and you want
04:41
to reign on the first page let’s say Los
04:45
Angeles chiropractors you need to make
04:48
sure that that category is correct so
04:50
many times business owners are not
04:53
listed in the correct category now
04:56
Google does have a local business
04:58
support line which you can go to and
05:01
place a tutorial
05:04
there’s tutorials in there that you can
05:07
look into and but you can actually ask
05:11
questions about it and you can always
05:14
contact them for specifics and ask them
05:17
why it is that my listing is not first
05:20
page but you’ve got to make sure that
05:23
you have the appropriate category
05:25
checked your chiropractor the
05:28
appropriate category is chiropractor if
05:30
you’re an acupuncture the acupuncture is
05:34
the categories acupuncture attorney is
05:37
attorney but a lot of doctors are
05:39
professionals so they overlook that one
05:43
little thing and the next thing you want
05:45
to make sure with your Google Maps
05:47
listing is that you mention your
05:50
keywords somewhere in the business
05:52
description to have to include a
05:55
business description when you you have
05:58
to include it because when you fill out
06:00
the listing they ask you for a
06:02
particular description of your business
06:05
and the keyword is a big deal so you
06:07
want keywords in there and we optimized
06:11
Google listings all the time believe it
06:13
or not you could optimize a Facebook
06:16
listing so that pulls up so it’s a big
06:19
deal to put that into the Google and
06:21
then they will sync that keyword with
06:24
your category with the amount of reviews
06:26
that you have and of course with the
06:28
amount of citations that you have and
06:30
everything will start working together
06:32
in your favor and you’ll get higher
06:35
rankings the only x-factor that you
06:38
really can’t control is the distance so
06:41
Google puts you in the center of the
06:43
town and does you know is it’s a random
06:46
place unfortunately we don’t know where
06:49
that’s going to be specifically so now
06:54
especially on a mobile device there’s so
06:57
many times that people are searching on
06:59
a mobile device and you really don’t
07:01
know where they’re searching for so in a
07:03
place we’ll have the citations more than
07:07
anyone else and have more reviews than
07:10
anyone else and make sure the category
07:12
is appropriate for the listing make sure
07:15
that it’s verified and that you’ve got
07:17
the keywords in that business listing
07:19
you know you look at a book on Amazon
07:21
and they’ve got the other books below or
07:24
they got feedback and reviews right away
07:26
that’s how Google is trying to be so
07:30
competitors especially by two to three
07:33
times you win the game and you’re going
07:36
to reap the benefits the lion’s share of
07:39
new customers patients clients online so
07:43
really really that’s a big deal for your
07:46
local business owners and I want to
07:49
provide you with some valuable content
07:52
today because that is one of the most
07:54
common questions that I receive and I’ve
07:57
got professionals alone that will get an
08:00
extra 15 to 30 clients per month just
08:04
off the optimizing of the Google Maps
08:07
profile so it’s huge depending on how
08:11
large your city is and really dictates
08:14
the amount of traffic that you’re going
08:16
to get in that listing and it’s just now
08:19
that about one magic bullet online for
08:23
years I’ve been teaching multiple
08:25
dimensional approach of getting Facebook
08:29
Google Pinterest Instagram Twitter
08:32
YouTube all of it these other mediums
08:35
created this massive spider web online
08:39
so this year the only logical choice
08:42
where someone searches for either a
08:45
doctor or specialists or whatever the
08:48
business profession is online period it
08:50
works every single time so hopefully you
08:55
learn some value from this out of the
08:57
