How important is Google My Business for local SEO?
The increased visibility that Google has placed around Google Local listing results on mobile has meant that Google My Business is essential for local SEO.
If you are searching on a mobile device you will see that organic results are now shown below the fold (you have to scroll down to see them) and there are now only the top three Google local results being shown – so due to the on-page real estate Google local can take up, there’s huge traffic opportunities for being listed for competitive searches.
Critical. It’s the centerpiece and fundamental to any local campaign! You simply don’t exist if you don’t create a Google my business page for your local business.
What are the most important things businesses can do to optimise their Google local listings?
It’s absolutely important that the number listed is a local number, and that it matches the number displayed on the landing page it links to.
It’s super important to use the actual business name and choose the correct categories as well. Beyond that, my suspicion is that nothing else will matter after the change.

Google My Business FAQ's
Even though it doesn’t seem fair to most business owners, anyone can suggest a change or an edit to your business listing, including your competition. These user-generated changes can be made live on your listing, and you might not even be notified the changes have been made. This includes changing your physical business location.
Hence we help in maintaining your GMB for its smooth and Secured running.
Are they truly fake reviews or reviews you simply don’t like? If they’re negative reviews you don’t like or don’t agree with, Google probably won’t remove them.
First, reach out to any former employees you think may have claimed your Google My Business listing, ask if they did, and then ask for the email address and password. Or ask they log in and make you the primary owner.
If you worked with a digital marketing agency, reach out to them as well. Agencies should have you claim your listing and then ask to make them managers of your listing so this type of thing doesn’t happen. As the business owner, you should always have control of your listing. That’s the proper protocol.
No, I would not waste the space.
Even though they might look like it, Google My Business posts are not social media posts. You have up to 1,500 characters for the details of your post, but the ideal length is between 150 and 300 characters, so use these characters wisely.
