A free first page listing for your business on Google

Have you ever noticed that nowadays when you search for a local business on Google, a list of companies with their locations pops up ahead of any other search results. These are Google local business listings and they are completely free.

To get listed go to the Google maps home page and click on "put your business on Google maps". You must have a physical business location and business phone number. That phone number must be verified by Google, which is usually done through a simple phone call.

Gather your business information carefully. You have the ability to enter photographs and videos as well as your business description. I would reccomend you research the keywords visitors are using to find your business before you enter your business description. You can also use these keywords in the filenames you use for your videos and photographs.

The advantage to doing all this is that your business can end up getting listed on the first page of Googles search results for that keyword in a matter of 24 hours after you list your business. Google maps listings are probably the simplest and sure fire ways to get listed by Google.
