how to optimize google my business 2020

You can optimize your Google My Business listing by adding the correct contact details of your business. You must display your contact details correctly because it is the extension of your business contact details.

As a result, you will be able to offer more hours and monitor specific performance metrics.

Adding a cover photo

Adding a cover photo to your GMB profile is an easy way to improve your visibility. You can add as many as five photos, as long as they are between 10KB and 5MB.

Adding a photo to your profile is as easy as going into your profile and choosing the image.

Adding a description

Adding a description to your Google My Business listing is an easy way to improve your search rankings. Make sure the description is relevant and includes a call to action. Keep in mind that your description should be no longer than 750 characters, so avoid writing promotional content. Use the following tips to add a compelling description. Listed below are some ways to improve your listing. Once you’ve made the change, make sure to check the listing to see how it will affect your search rankings.

Adding a review link

You can add a review link to Google My Business to help get more reviews. Simply login to your Google My Business account and add a short name to your profile. It should be 32 characters or less. If the short name you have entered is unique, Google will tell you. Once approved, the review link will appear on your business’s profile. You can also send out automated email follow ups to encourage customers to leave a review.

Adding a location

If you want to add more than one location to your Google My Business 2020 profile, you can use location groups. These groups allow you to manage each location independently, but you can also transfer them to the main account. Here’s how.

Adding a map

Adding a map to your Google My Business listing is an essential step for ranking highly in the Map Pack. People who find your profile via a map are much more likely to visit, request directions, or call. However, you can do more to increase your visibility on the map than just adding a map.
