Google is the world’s most popular search engine. Long gone are the days of using phone books and the yellow pages to search for local businesses in your area. Thousands upon thousands of people in Columbus use Google daily to search for local restaurants, local services, local products, and local businesses to meet their needs. These are customers already interested, taking action, and ready to buy using Google to search for your services and ready to do business with you… but there’s just one problem.
Are you showing up organically in the Google Maps search results? Do you have an optimized Google Business Profile Listing (formerly Google My Business)? Do you have great reviews, consistent and updated business info, and content-rich descriptions with your keywords strategically placed in your GBP listing? Were you even aware that you could leverage Google to increase your business’s online presence and drive direct traffic & sales to your business?
Think about all that online traffic that you’re currently missing out on and imagine an optimized GBP listing causing your phone to ring with fresh new leads if you were ranked in the top 3 Google Map Pack? How would you like to get your business ranked in Google’s Top 3 Map Pack, completely hands-free, while seeing HUGE returns of investments with an effective GBP SEO Campaign?
Most of the online traffic that is coming from local products, local businesses, and local services right now is coming from Google. Stop trying to optimize your Google Business Profile listing yourself! Smart business owners know their time is better spent working on the actual business – performing tasks focused on growing the business in the mid to long-term -rather than working in the business – doing the actual manual tasks that just slows you down as a business.
Also, ranking in the 3 pack is becoming more and more difficult if you are not using advanced strategies. We take the best strategies and tactics from industry-leading GBP optimization campaigns designed to get you into the 3-page listings for keywords related to your business.
Here are some examples of what Google Maps SEO can do for your business:
Let’s be honest here. When was the last time you went to the second page of Google to find what you were searching for? Most of the search traffic is generated in page one organic and the Google Map Pack. When you invest in your GBP search engine optimization, you are making a direct investment in it’s visibility and profitability on the web. This is why SEO is so important, no matter what your business does. And based on the way search engines are developing, it’s unlikely that SEO will lose importance any time soon.
Everybody LOVES instant results. Pay a fee, get your business ranked on the first page of Google, and get all the leads and sales that your business can possibly handle. What a glorious day that will be. However, in the SEO world, instant results are a mere myth thanks to Google’s Algorithm. The way that Google’s Algorithm is set up is that it RANKS Websites and GBP Listings for Quality OVER Quantity. SEO is an investment, a marathon (not a sprint), and takes time for the work to be manifested onto Google by following our strategic AND effective strategies – like this example, where we took a client that had minimal optimization with only 7% visibility within a 5-mile area and we 10X’ed it to over 70% and counting (current client).

180 Day Local Maps and GBP Campaign Details
These are the services and tasks that we implement every month strictly for your 180-day GBP SEO campaigns. It is designed for local competition niches and local metropolitan areas. These GBP SEO strategies are designed to get your business into the 3 Pack.
We start your 180-Day Campaign with Keyword Research (We find the top 5 keywords for your niche to help you rank on Google Maps for) and create you a new GBP account (if you don’t have one already). This acts as an additional branded property including your main company website, and selected brand profiles (Facebook page, etc) with correct NAP (Name, Address, Phone #), hours, verifying primary and secondary categories, services, and more.
We also rewrite your business description to be keyword optimized and begin building your initial round of 50 citations.
We continue implementing our local link strategies with branded profiles that will help you increase in local searches and rankings. We also write high-quality articles and press releases written with call to actions and complete with company information and keywords for your GBP listings. We are using this article similarly to the original GBP descriptions where we highlight the location and geo-area as well as the brand’s services and contact information.
We continue with optimizing your own website, completing tasks include Optimizing Title Tags, Metas, H1 and H2 Tags, Image Alt Text, Inner Linking Structure and Anchor Text, Outbound Link Structure and Anchor Text, create and validate Organizational Schema on the target page. We further optimize the local business JSON markup, Google Maps embed, local relevancy linking, NAP and hours.
We create geo-relevant pages on your local business website, a key ranking factor in the local search algorithm. These networks can help make the difference in high-competition niches and large metro areas as most sites lack “location” relevancy. We also begin building out a niche-relevant blog and use this to provide valuable insights to your prospective clients about your products and services.
We create 50 additional citations based on your location and niche to further round out the brand’s digital presence. These are manually built business listings with complete details filled out and a careful attention to the company NAP and information. We also begin link building to your primary website, reaching out to other relevant sites, writing content, and linking back to your site,
We continue with another 50 citations and continue link building to your primary website. We continue ongoing blogging and also based on the difficulty of rankings, we will continue building out geo-relevant pages and interlinking them to your primary city page,
We continue to create quality content for backlinks, and continued building of blog pages and the geo-network, specifically discussing the location. Combining this with our proven internal link strategy, this system is designed to funnel massive geo-relevance to any brand.
Yes absolutely! We build out a Google Data Studio dashboard that is linked to all 3 Google properties where we can get data – Google Search Console, Google Analytics, and Google Business Profile. We also put together a monthly report of tasks completed, pages build, links built, and record a video talking through our report and going into greater detail than what we can in the written report. We’ll also provide a maps report showing your improved presence over time in a geographic area, typically 1-5 miles around the area of your business (depends on how urban your environment is).
Plain and simple, GBP SEO takes time. It takes time to research your market and industry. It takes time to perform the necessary analyses. And it takes time to produce quality content, citations, and implementing our proven tactics to boost your rankings. And that’s just on our side of things. It takes time for Google to recognize your GBP listing and assign it the authority it deserves. It takes time for it to see that changes have been made, compare the quality of your GBP listing and your content to everyone else in the same space. It even takes time for user behavior to change. They’ll need a while to discover that things on your site have changed. HOWEVER, Most clients are reporting seeing gains within 8-10 weeks of the campaigns starting, and they are already getting new leads and sales. We’ve built a 6-month GBP SEO Campaign blueprint with some of the best methods for the Google 3 Pack . Our results always outperform anything you would get from lesser quality providers.
Our 180 Day Campaigns includes 4 major data aggregator submissions (USA). We manually submit to 50 primary directories, an additional 100 secondary citations, and the Top 200 branded social accounts.
The more consistent citations you have, the higher you WILL Rank
A consistent NAP (Name, Address, Phone Number) is still very important to local rankings. If your NAP details change during the course of the campaign there will be an additional fee required to change or update any work already completed.
Of course. We’ll be more than happy to walk through our process, give you an analysis of where you are right now and what can be improved on your website. We also provide you with recorded video and reports in the following months. We do allow additional phone calls to follow up with you about your GBP SEO Campaign but calls must be scheduled by email first.
