What is Google Places?
Google Places is very important to any business that has a location and is looking to attract local customers.
Google Places provides your business with a free and detailed listing in Google Maps. When potential customers search Google, precedence in the search results is now given to local businesses listed on Google Maps. Google Places listings are even given priority over Google ads or sponsored listings. A Google Places listing provides your potential clients with essential information about your address, hours of operation, even photos of your shop front or products. It's easy, and you don't even need to have a website.
Whether you run a single dentist's office or dozens of coffee shops, you can manage all your listings from a single account.
Reach new customers using Google Places
Local customers are already searching for the products and services that you offer. Why not make it easy for them to find you on Google search and on Google Maps? Google Places is the place to start.
Claim or optimise your listing
If your business is already on Google Places it is vital that you update your local listing to target the keywords most important to your business. This will directly impact your Google search results.
