GOOGLE BUSINESS PROFILE SERVICES
Google Business Profile, formerly known as Google My Business, is a free tool for businesses to manage their online presence across Google Search and Google Maps. When you verify and edit your Google business information, you help consumers find your business. However, in order to take full advantage of your Google business listing, you MUST optimize your Google Business Profile.
As recent as July 27, 2022, local SEO statistics from Google Maps found that 86% of users are using the platform when looking for products and services offered by local stores. “Near Me” or “Close to Me” searches are up a whopping 200% in the past couple of years. 72% of consumers that did a local search visited a business location within 5 miles, and oftentimes much farther when the business had quality reviews. If you are not showing up on Google Business Profile for your most important keywords, you are missing out on five times more views.
The problem with most small to medium-sized companies is that they do not want to hire an agency and sign a 12-month commitment to find out if optimizing their Google listing will actually generate additional revenue for them. That’s why starting in September, 2023 we are offering a “2-Month Trial Special” (see details below).
Sign up for our “2-Month Trial Special” and if you are not 100 percent satisfied after the two months, simply cancel. No commitment. No strings attached. You will actually know firsthand how your Google listing is doing, and it will be entirely up to you whether you want to continue after the “2-Month Trial Special.” We are confident that you will like the results and continue with the optimization service because it will give you a return on your investment.
Google business listings need to be claimed, verified, and then optimized

An SSL Certificate (Secure Sockets Layer), also called a Digital Certificate, creates a secure link between a website and a visitor’s browser. By ensuring that all data passed between the two remains private and secure, SSL encryption prevents hackers from stealing private information such as credit card info, social security numbers, names, addresses, usernames and passwords. Organizations must use an SSL certificate to secure their site if they wish to take online payments or expect their visitors to submit confidential information. Besides building trust and security into your website, SSL certificates also help with SEO efforts now that Google is providing a rankings boost for pages that are served over https (“S” stands for security) instead of the usual http (Hypertext Transfer Protocol). Our rate is $70/ year (includes installation.)
