Google Business Profile Directory Listing

What is a Google My Business listing exactly?

Ensuring there’s consistency and authority for Google’s own business directory is paramount. If you don’t know much about GMB, it can be compared to other large business directories, such as Apple Maps, Truelocal.com.au or Womo.com.au. GMB’s purpose is to provide listing information for your business that is available in an easy manner. This is where we focus efforts on auditing your website, business directory listings and other online mentions as we must ensure any/all display as close to 100% consistency as possible to your GMB. Your GMB acts as a channel for potential customers to find quick information about you, such as reviews, specific geographical location, phone number, website address, hours of business, products and/or services you offer and so on. However, unlike those mentioned above, Google’s directory database is shared in the most intuitive manner – using structured markup.

The Local SEO Sweet Spot:
Your Google Directory Information Is Always Found In

Discover More Places Although there’s no silver bullet with ‘Discover More Places‘, the chance of being included is only ever going to happen if you are highly relevant to the local search query used in the first place. For example, searching for ‘jewellery stores Sydney’ returned the following:

Local Pack Domination Pays Out You can access through your browser and when you search for a keyword/phrase, you receive a list of results and a map to make it easier to select a local option by their exact location. You can see how handy this can be below when I search for the keyword ‘Sydney Harbour cruises’

(NOTE: there’s also the Google Maps App for mobile users)

Local Pack Domination Pays Out The local pack is likely the most well known GMB-related spot (also known as ‘snack pack’) for your GMB directory business listing data to be displayed and below is an example for the search query “dentist Gordon NSW”.

The search for directions function is used by millions of Australians everyday to find local business, personal addresses, restaurants and events. The Google app is widely used on mobile devices and makes finding directions to new businesses and services when on the move easier than ever.

Traditional SEO when employing the best SEO practices help to improve your organic visibility for relevant highly searched non location based generic keywords in Google.com.au on a national level. While local SEO strategies enable you to boost your Google My Business pages local visibility in the Google map listings alongside increasing your website's organic search engine rankings when potential customers are searching for your products or services within your geographical location.

Firstly what is NAP? It's an acronym for Name, Address, and Phone number and it's the blood and guts of any local search campaign. For Google or any of the other search engines using local search functionality, understanding your business Name Address & Phone number details are absolutely vital for your local online presence. As a business owner, it's essential that you make sure you are consistent across your website, GMB page and all external business directory listings or anywhere else where your businesses NAP details have online mentions. This is why it's so important to conduct a citation audit and cleanup when your business changes address, otherwise this can lead to confusing Google and losing visibility for local searches.

Multiple location SEO is for businesses who have more than one business location or address. For example, an Australian florist with locations in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. It would be highly important for a florist operating a flower delivery service to have good local visibility for each of their 3 business locations. The process is very similar to a normal local SEO strategy for a single business location. Apart from the fact you need to make sure all the different locations all have verified GMB pages and that their individual NAP details are mentioned on the business website preferably on individual pages which would be linked and associated to their respectful GMB location pages.

Yes you can have local SEO visibility for multiple city locations across Australia such as Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane but firstly you must have physical locations within those cities. You also need to make sure you have verified Google My Business pages for each location setup correctly. We also recommend setting up dedicated optimised location pages specific to the different locations of your business within your website. It's important to make sure your website's location pages correlate correctly with your location specific GMB pages. For example if you have locations in Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne. Your Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne GMB pages should link to your Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne location pages on your website. To reinforce Google's understanding of the multiple location nature of your business further, the NAP details (name, address and phone number) for each of your locations which appear on your GMB pages should also appear on the corresponding location page within your website. Confused yet? Please feel free to get in touch with us so we can fully explain the dynamics of local SEO for multiple locations further and put it all into context for you.
