Stake Your Claim: The Power of Google My Business 


Have you claimed your Google My Business listing yet? 

If you haven’t yet, stop reading this blog. 

No, really. 

We want you to keep reading, of course. We want you to read these blogs, leave a comment, connect with Danny, all of that. 

But, claiming your Google My Business listing is one of the best and simplest things you can do for your business. 

It doesn’t take days or even hours. Simply claiming it might take less time than it will to read this blog. 

Even with that short span, it can help your business in multiple ways. 


The Reason Why It’s Important is In the Name 


It’s not called “Bing My Business” or “Ask Jeeves My Business.” It’s “Google My Business.” 

So, as you might imagine, Google takes it quite seriously. 

Is claiming your Google My Business the most effective way to increase your Google ranking? 

Perhaps not. 

But, it’s certainly a necessary one. Moreover, when combined with web design, content, and more, it can make your online reach that much more powerful. 

Besides, it only takes a few minutes to do. As far as  “bang for your buck” goes, claiming your Google My Business is hard to beat. 


A Definitive Answer 


“Claiming” your Google My Business is one thing. 

You have to put in the information, too. 

This information can help in ways that may not show up in analytics. 

For example, when people search online for your business hours, your contact info, and other important information, can they find it? 

If you’ve claimed your Google My Business, they can. 

Moreover, they can find a definitive answer for all of those things. 

See, if you don’t claim your Google My Business, it’s entirely possible for people to find incorrect answers about your business hours and contact info. 

Has your business changed addresses, phone numbers, websites, or emails? 

Then, without Google My Business, it’s possible someone who’s very interested in giving you money is going to find the wrong contact info. 

Claiming your Google My Business isn’t the only thing you can do to help your business, but it’s something important.
