Google My Business – Optimize Your Local Presence
Google My Business offers amazing “New Features” to optimize your local business On Search and Maps
The best part is that Google is not charging for this service, but you have to be consistent with providing updated business information such as services offered, business hours, holiday closings and more. By optimizing your business listing you can optimize picture and post views and follow up actions include phone calls, text messages, and bookings for your business. Your local map data includes the number of direction requests and phone calls to your business that came directly from Google maps and local search results.
DID YOU KNOW? YOU CAN SHARE CONTENT & PICTURES ON GOOGLE POSTS
Google My Business Posts added new features that allow you to publish events, offers, and news directly to your business listing on Google Search and Google Maps. Posts will show up in the Knowledge Panel when someone searches for your business.
WHAT’S THE BEST GOOGLE POST IMAGE SIZE?
The perfect image size for a Google post is 1200 x 900 image, which maintains a 4:3 ratio in high resolution. Within the Knowledge Panel, the image displays at a 16:9 ratio. The tricky part is that Google automatically crops the image, and it seems to change based on the content of the image. Choose the preview button prior to posting to be sure it looks good. Don’t forget to add a button with the appropriate link! Choose from: Learn more, Call Now, Sign Up, Get Offer, & Book Now.
