Why is a Google My Business Account so important for local SEO?

local-seo-google-my-businessFirst, it’s important to define local SEO or Search Engine Optimization. SEO enables Google to understand where your business is located and what services your provide.

This not only establishes your presence on the Internet, it also allows Google to better understand your business so that they can enhance the end users experience. The end users are simply the potential customers or clients in your local market.

Consequently, the better Google knows and likes your business, the more likely they are to send visitors to your website when these visitors search on the Internet.

Self Empower Coaching

“I knew I needed a website. I did that with GoDaddy. But, that website wasn’t really doing anything to promote my business…

Paul redesigned my website and Rick did the SEO work. I quickly started ranking high in Google local search.

Paul and I now meet every week to discuss new strategies on promoting my business.

And, I learned how to do SEO from Rick.

Paul has helped me create content and products, based on my knowledge and experience, that I can sell right from my website. And, it works! We’re on an amazing journey that I’m confident will not only grow my reputation and business, but will also create residual profit for me with the products Paul has helped me create.”

“I love working with Rick Samara. He provides a wealth of information on marketing our dental practice on the Internet!

He’s developed an integrated plan that includes our new website design, Google Place Listing and Facebook Fan Page; and he even provided us a free Internet coupon (ZPON) campaign. I’m excited.

He is totally accessible. I can tell his number 1 priority is helping us grow our business. We work together.

He provides constant updates on his activity. It just couldn’t get any better.

If you are not using Rick to market your business on the Internet, you are making a huge mistake!”

“Rick Samara’s Internet marketing services and strategies are a “sure fire” success for small business owners.

He explained to me the advantages of claiming my Google Place Listing (now MyBusiness) for my law practice.

I wanted to target a specific geographic area to increase my visibility. Rick did it… fast! He now has me on Google page one for valuable keywords that relate directly to my practice and consistently creates new business for my firm.

If you want results, talk to Rick!”

His attention to detail is simply superb and to pin point his area of expertise is difficult as he covers so much.
