Your Google My Business listing is your online digital anchor.
If you don’t have one, you’re missing out. If you have one but it’s not up to date, you’re hurting yourself. If you have one and it’s inaccurate information, then you’re really sinking yourself as far as visibility to Google.
It’s important to keep in mind that your business has a digital footprint, and that Google has an opinion of that digital footprint. The bigger your footprint grows, the more important it becomes that you have a reliable digital anchor
INSIDER TIP: Two important search signals that Google factors into a business’s visibility and overall ranking are the quality and consistency of its listings across 30 important, but undisclosed, directories.
To address your Google My Business quality and consistency right away you have 2 possible next steps:
Hit the BACK BUTTON to your Scan Results.
From there you can step through the 50 directories that are most relevant to your business type claiming your record, updating it to match your Google My Business record exactly (name, address, phone, hours, business type, etc). That is, if you have claimed and optimized your GMB already, and have a few hours to spare. Then, re-scan your site any time using our free scan tool to see how you’re doing.
