Customer reviews.

Google reviews are the key for your online reputation – several positive reviews will help to attract new customers to your business.

Creating a Google Business Profile will enable you to generate customer reviews, so you can respond to their praise, complaints, and queries, showing your customers you care.

Receive a poor review? Don’t worry – Google finds a mix of positive and negative reviews trustworthy.

What are local business listings, and why do they matter?

A local business listing is an online portfolio containing your top-level business information, including your name, address, phone number, opening times and web address. They are in local online directories, websites and across social media.

Google relies heavily on these listings (Google Business Profile, for example) to help find local businesses to include in their local search results.

By building your local listings, you are more likely to attract local customers and increase your rankings across the search engines for location-based searches. The listings will provide you with backlinks to your website, a crucial aspect of SEO.

Plus, the more opportunities to display your business exists, is open for customers and is locally well established, the more likely you will rank positively online.

What is a Google Business Profile, and how can it help my business?

Google Business Profile is a free tool to advertise your business on Google MapsSearch, and Shopping.

After verification, your profile builds customer trust and boosts your visibility on Google.

Your profile displays your contact details, including your address, phone number, and opening hours, making it easier for customers to find your information.

Why is a Google Business Profile listing important for Google Maps?

Your Google Business Profile helps you to manage your online presence and how you appear in the organic search results. When your GBP is live, you are more likely to be considered a reputable business by local customers, as Google uses this information to populate the Local 3-Pack feature within the Maps results pages.

Google recently revealed businesses that add photos to their GBP listing receive 42% more requests for directions via Maps and 35% more clicks through to their website – compared to those who do not.

How do I optimise my Google Business Profile for local SEO?

Start appearing in your local search results with our handy tips below.


  • Keep your business information consistent online, and make sure your business details (name, address and phone number) are correct when creating your listing
  • Choose a business category that aligns with your services as much as possible
  • Use the best photos for your business, displaying your employees, personality and products
  • Respond to every customer review (positive and negative) – Google uses your customer reviews to help determine your ranking for SEO
