High Search Ranking with Google Places
I almost didn't post this for fear of stating the obvious but it must be recognized that Google Places is powerful, but often overlooked tool in achieving high search page results.
"Google Places" is Google's in house ability to geo-tag your own company or business as well has provide information about your company such as email, website, address, products and services etc...
The Google Places landing page tells us:
Millions of people search Google Maps every day. A free listing on Google Maps makes it easy for them to find you.
Use Google Places to create your free listing.When potential customers search Maps for local information, they'll find your business: your address, hours of operation, even photos of your storefront or products.It's easy, free, and you don't need a website of your own.
The reality is, this is true! by taking a few moments to fill out the required information you can put your business at the top of a search result page when the search parameters match your business' tags.
Our first Concrete5 website was for a Property Dealer in Varanasi, India. The dealer wanted a website that would help potential property investors and companies who were establishing new offices find him. He opted for a domain name that reflected his company name: www.satyamproperty.com . Branded domain names are good for business but not always the best choice for search engine optimization. So, in order to give his company a boost we registered the company with Google Places. The result was fantastic and as a result of both Google Places and some hard work in online marketing and link building His website has the number one spot for "property dealer in Varanasi" search result.
Moral of the Story? Take the time to get set up with Google Places.
