5 Tips for How to Rank Your Business in Google Local Listing

Listing your business in the Google places as local business listings is extremely powerful. Google Places is the number one local business directory where people list their business of every niche. Today I am going to teach you how to get your business listed and appear in the search results against your local city. No one can guarantee you top rankings in Google search result but if you follow some steps and guidelines, than your chances are higher. Following are the steps:

  1. First of all create a local business listing for your business in Google Places.
  2. Verify your listing via phone or a postal address. If you select phone, they will call you instantly and tell you the code while selecting the postal option takes around 2 days.
  3. Do a keywords research for your business and use these keywords in services, descriptions and all other places. 
  4. Try to complete every spot available in the listing i.e. pictures, videos, coupons, services, payment methods etc.
  5. Once your listing gets approved than you need to add this listing profile to other local business directories like Yelp, Yellow Pages etc. There are thousands of such directories available. 

Once you are done with these 5 steps it’s time to wait a little bit and let the search engines do its magic. You will get reviews from your customers, readers and other random internet users. After 2-3 months check your listing by searching with your keywords and your city name in Google and I bet you will be appearing in the top 10 results.
