Google My Business, which used to be known as Google Places for Businesses, is a valuable tool that every business should utilize to be more relevant in Google search results. GMB is fairly straightforward with basic information about hours, location, contact information and the like. However, like most things there are certain insider tips that can be utilized for better local search visibility. Today NY based web design company, Lounge Lizard, shares Insider Tips for better Google My Business Listings.

    1. Check your dashboard weekly. Google My Business is not a place you should
       set-up and forget about. The main reason you need to check in regularly
       is because anyone can make a suggestion to change or edit your business
       listing from your next-door neighbor to your biggest competitor. Even
       worse, you are not always notified about these changes. When you log in,
       simply switch to the "classic view' of the dashboard and then select
       "Google Updates". From here you can review any updates that were made or
    2. Regularly use GMB posts. These posts are a terrific way to promote your
       business. While not as effective as social media or other marketing
       methods, you can let people know about new products, services, events,
       sales, and the like. Ideally posts should be 150 to 300 characters as
       that is the ideal window for a snippet, so keep them short and to the
       point. Each post stays live for seven days and you should use images for
       additional visibility.
    3. Respond to reviews. Responding to reviews shows that you do care about
       customer problems and concerns. Google's policies include tips for
       replying to reviews and they should be taken to heart. Their tips are to
       be nice, keep it short, be a friend and not a salesperson, thank
       reviewers, and don't get personal. You can check Google's Review Policies
       if you feel a review might be fake and is in violation of their policies.
       If so you can go to your dashboard and flag the review as inappropriate.
    4. Claim your listing. Always take the time to claim your listing and don't
       lose the email address used or password. If someone else set up the page
       and claimed it, make sure you obtain the email address and password so
       that you maintain control of your listing as the primary owner. If by
       chance someone else has claimed your listing, you can contact Google.
    5. Visit the GMB forum. The Google My Business forum is a fantastic
       resource. Not only is there a ton of great info from prior posts that
       have been answered, but you can also post questions that experts and Top
       Contributors can answer. Knowledge is power! Everyone who uses GMB should
       take time to explore the forum and become familiar with what it has to
