Want to know how to get front page Google results without having a website? Then read on.
Did you know that 80% of searches online are location-based searches? That is, people looking for a product or service in a geographical location.
Have you ever noticed that when you use Google to search, often there is a map with red pin-points on it at the top of the first page results?
Because Google know that most people are looking for location-based searches, they put Google maps at the top of the organic search results to help people quickly see what results are closest to the location they are searching.
So on this example, I have typed into Google “baby gear Capalaba” .
You will notice that there are two Google Map listings using these keywords that are showing on the front page.
Both have links to websites as well as their address and phone numbers on display.
What is even more exciting is that to have a Google Map listing like this is absolutely FREE!
So how do you get a Google Map listing?
You will need a Google Account which is free. There is a place to sign up to get a Google Account on the link below as well.
Once you have an account then go to www.google.com.au/places
Sign in using your new Google account details and then select Add A New Business.
Fill in your business details and on the description use as many of your keywords as possible to describe your service or product ie: baby pram, baby clothes, baby bags etc
You can add up to 5 categories for your business – for example, if you are a photographer your categories might include wedding photographer, family photographer, portrait photographer, school photographer, pet photographer.
Follow the steps on each page and be as detailed about your business as possible. You can even upload photos of your business, service and products as well which is recommended.
When you have completed all the steps you will have a Google Maps listing on the front page of Google on keywords related to your business.
What is even more exciting is that you can do this even if you don’t have a website. Amazing!
So what are you waiting for…get going and get front page results now!!!
