Examples To Make Money With Google Maps.
Lets start with a very common query which people are entering into Google maps every day.
Recently I went away for a short break with my family and whilst away I loaded up Google maps and typed restaurants in the local area.
Now, based upon your specific location Google will bring up a list of restaurants, (this works for anything, bars, restaurants, gyms etc)
Google maps will provide you a full list of all the local restaurants, it will also share key information like.
- Restaurant name
- Contact details
- Menus if available
- Delivery options
Here is an example of how this looks.
I looked at a couple and booked a restaurant within 5 minutes.
In total the search “restaurants in Leeds” brought up over 80 different places.
Did I look at each and every one?
Of course not, I looked at the ones in the top 3 and booked one of these.
Do you think restaurant owners would like to feature in the top 10? 5 or even 3?
The restaurants in these positions receive the most visits to their websites and in doing so get more customers through the doors.
But here is the thing, many restaurant owners have no idea how to get their listing in the top results. Some restaurants don't even have a listing on Google maps.
Here are just a few things required for listings to rank in Google Maps.
- Verifying a Google My Business Listing.
- Add information to your Google Maps business listing with correct phone number, business address, opening hours.
- Add photos to your Google Maps business listing and geo tag them.
- Google Map Citations.
