Google My Business Optimization
A must for local businesses
Are you ready to take your GMB optimization to the next level?
What is Google My Business Optimization?
GMB Optimization is a powerful service that takes what you’ve already done to improve your Google My Business listing and pushes it over the edge. GMB optimization includes checking for any errors or outdated information on your GMB profile, making sure everything looks good at first glance, and optimizing with SEO keywords in order to get found by search engines.
A Google My Business listing can be the difference between your business being found online or not. With everything going digital, it is more important than ever to create a strong presence on Google Maps and leverage their tools for increased visibility in local search results.
GMB optimization provides many benefits including helping you attract high-quality traffic as well as build an audience base of potential customers that are geographically close enough to visit your store in person. This process requires patience because only time will tell how long-lasting these SEO efforts maybe, but with Alignment Online Marketing’s innovative methods such as keyword research, we want our clients’ success stories to continue growing!
Why is it important for your local business to have a listing on GMB?
Having a GMB listing is an essential part of local business success in the digital age. In addition to giving people who are already your customers another way to find you, it also helps potential customers and clients find you more easily! By keeping your basic information updated and your listing optimized, you dramatically increase your chances of showing up in the Google 3-Pack which is the top 3 results in a local search. This 3-Pack gets 75+% of all the clicks!!!
Google has made great strides with its GMBs platform over the last few years – but there’s still plenty that can be done to make sure your GMB listing is up-to-date and optimized for SEO. Alignment Online Marketing specializes in local SEO, so we’re more than happy to help you optimize your Google My Business profile!

Is your Google My Business Listing Optimized Properly or Not?
- Is your GMB listing complete? Does it have all the necessary information such as name, address, hours of operation, and contact numbers?
- Are you using Google My Business categories correctly to present a clear image of your business?
- Do you have photos that represent what customers will experience at your place or event?
- Are you regularly updating with posts, Q&As, photos, etc.?
- Are your reviews being answered?
These are just a few of the many ways to evaluate whether your GMB listing is optimized to a basic level. There is so much more to consider for a fully optimized GMB listing.
