Claiming your local or small business on Google is one of the most effective ways to establish an excellent reputation online. Not only is Google the most used website and search engine today, but it’s also where nearly everyone starts and ends when looking for information online.
You can ask yourself, “What appears in the search results when someone Googles your name“? If your site isn’t ranking number one, then someone else is — which also means someone else controls your reputation and the first impression you make.
By claiming your business page through Google, you will legitimize your business and show that it’s real, unlocking a wide range of benefits both within and outside of Google.
When you claim a business on Google, your business information is readily discoverable by anyone. In addition to being able to share your business name and business phone number in search results, setting up a Google business profile puts you on the map — literally. Google Maps is linked to your profile, displaying your business location and making it easier for potential customers to find you.
