It’s no secret that everyone wants to be on the first page of Google, but with many different ways to achieve this – what’s the best solution for your business? If you deal with locally based customers from your town or city, there is a quick and easy ‘shortcut’ to get listed on the first page of Google!
This shortcut has to do with Google’s local business listings, which are often shown as the first result when customers search for your business category.
For example, if somebody from New York searches for “florist”, “florists”, or something more targeted like “florist new york” Google can show a 10-pack of local business results deemed most relevant to the query.
Just take a look at the search results below:
You’ll notice that these local business results are listed as the number 1 Google result above even the regular organic listings!
In many ways, these listings are even better than regular listings because users get more than just a link to your website. They also get your phone number, a map of your location and an additional link to find out more about your business.
Many people consider this to be a “shortcut” to the first page of Google because achieving a first page local listing can be a lot quicker and cheaper than other traditional methods.
Creating and optimizing your local listing is tricky to begin with, but considering it can get your business on the first page of Google, it’s a small price to pay!
