Map Listing Optimization

Put Your Business on the Google Maps.


Local searches trigger local results on Google. Today, the first page of search results is commonly dominated by what is known as the “3-pack.” This is essentially a collection of local search result listings that are displayed with Google Maps before the organic results. As Google continues to develop the localization of it’s search algorithm, many searches trigger local business listings in the search results. This makes it imperative that your business be well represented on Google Maps and in local search results.

With our Google Maps listing optimization service, your business listing will be optimized for search results on both Google and the Google Maps application. We also optimize listings for other major search engines – such as Yahoo, Yelp and Bing. Search Link literally helps put your business on the map.

How Does Google Rank Listings On Google Maps?

In order to determine what business listings appear in local search results, Google uses many factors and complicated algorithms. Some of them include the relevance to the keyword or phrase searched, distance that is determined by the users IP-based location or phone GPS and prominence determined by Google’s algorithms for organically ranking websites.
