Google Places SEO

Google Places stems from its beginning as Google Maps and allows local companies to get an enhanced listing on a Google SERP (Search Engine Results Page) when otherwise large national companies would hog all top ten places.

Just lately Places has undergone quite a transformation which means that there are some other considerations for Google Places SEO and anyone wanting to rank well may have to do a little more work.

google localThe map with pins (see the example below) comes with 2, 3, 7 or 10 company listings.

At first, Google would populate this map with 10 companies that it found in the particular category in any online directories, now you can claim your listing, optimise it, add photos and videos and even build links to it.

Google local is a must if you sell or market products and services to a local market. As with your website, make it as content rich as possible updating images, video and your products and services.
