Why It Is Important To Claim Your Google Listing.
As a business owner or manager in Brevard County, it would only make sense you would want to claim and verify your Google My Business listing. One of the best ways to make sure people can find you online is to have a Google My Business listing. A Google My Business listing is essential for local SEO and will help you get found for different search queries for your industry on Google.
Two Types Of Google My Business Listings.
There are two types of Google My Business listings, unverified listings and verified listings. When the listing is unverified, Google doesn’t know the information is accurate and neither will people searching for you. Also, this leaves the page open to someone else trying to claim your listing. Yes, just because the listing is for your business, almost anyone can claim a listing while it is unverified.
So one reason to claim your GMB listing is so your competition or someone else doesn’t claim it instead. Not sure if your listing is verified or not? Do a quick search for your business on Google and check the knowledge graph in the top right. See the image below for an example.
As you can tell from the above image, this business has almost no information. A potential customer will just continue to search to find a location they know will be open by the time they get there, has driving directions so they can navigate to the location or even use the click to call feature.
With a verified listing, Google and customers will know the information is accurate. Google is more likely to promote a verified Google My Business listing in the search results. While some may argue this statement, it is proven Google wants to provide the most accurate information in the search results. Having a verified listing suggest to Google it is accurate.
The above image is of a business that has a verified GMB listing. You can see their photos, the virtual tour of the inside, phone number, hours and reviews. As a potential customer you have a lot of useful information right here. If you were using a mobile device when searching, there would be an option to call the business and an option for driving directions.
How To Verify Your Google My Business Listing
It is easy for a business to verify their Google listing. You can request a pin code by mail, which will take a week to get and most often gets tossed in the trash as junk mail.
