How to get top listing in google maps?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by tjones188, Feb 21, 2012.

    is there a certain way to market company's that are listed on google maps so they are viewed before others at top?
    Does it go by how many reviews and company has?

    Some of the bigger factors have to do with reviews, like you said, and also the amount of pictures, video, etc included in the listing. Basically, the more you fill out the profile with lots of content the better it looks. You should also increase the number of reviews and then submit them to other review sites (think Yelp, Zagat, etc).

    Your business listing "TITLE" plays important role to get top listing in google maps.

    If your information is matching most with search query then only you can see yourself at top position. There is no promotion method to rank on top for Google Maps results.

    Keywords in your title (name of business), keywords in reviews, complete business profile (pic, info, vid, etc), MANY quality reviews, categories

    Make sure you business name, address and phone number are EXACTLY the same on all directory listings, review sites, etc. For example, if your address is 123 Main St, #10 then make sure that's how it's entered everywhere. Don't put 123 Main Street, #10 on one directory and then put 123 Main St, Suite 10 on another directory. Hope that's not too confusing :)
