Google My Business Basics

If you’re a local business owner, you can’t ignore Google My Business and still hope to rank in the Local Pack. The Local Pack is the highly-coveted space of three listings that show first when local results are shown on a Google search.

Google is really pushing for the first page of search results to be a business’s new website. Instead of clicking through to an actual website, Google’s making it easier for searchers to do almost all of their research about a company without ever leaving the search results page.

Having a fully optimized knowledge panel that shows all available information about a business has been shown to increase calls and inquiries to local businesses.
