Default How To Improve My Business Listing Under Google Map?

Hi, i am very much happier to see my website displaying under Google map. But it is in 5th position under Google map. How can i bring it to the "A" position.

I have posted few reviews but it was not displaying in my profile. i don't know what happened to my reviews.

What else have you done besides your own reviews? Plus, google may know that those reveiws are coming from you and not displaying any of them.

You need to have legit reviews these days, and a few different (kinds)of them, otherwise google doesn't display. You should invite real clients to review for you (and offer some special discounts).

I am not much aware Google maps, if you want more reviews then you have to share your contents in social media sites.

Yes, nowadays Google is not adding the reviews which comes from the same ip address. The reviews need to be very much genuine. But how could if the client don't have much knowledge on the computer and internet, will he able to create a profile in Google to post some positive comments.?

The best method to have reviews is from your own clients. Ask them to give you some nice reviews for your service.

There can be so many options to improve the business listing under Google map but the best one is to do SEO for your business website. It really helps to increase the position of a webpage on SERP, it is my personal experience. So you try this idea.

It is not just a about getting reviews. The most important aspect is the authority of your site. Google uses a similar algorithm for google places as it does for organic rankings. Also make sure you have loads of photos and videos on your profile.

If you need to improve your listing under google map, you need to get more comment on your listing and you need to add more images and add a finer description.
