This is Hank Hoffmeier with your Marketing and Business Tip for the Day.

Are you looking to have your website or business be found more prominently in search results, especially with Google? Well, Google my business is a great way to showcase your business and show up prominently in search engine results.

What you need to do is make sure you have a Google My Business account, fill out your profile and information describing your business, and of course add some images. What you will then do is once you save that and verify your business, you will be able to show people your hours of operation, what services you offer, and most importantly, it will highlight any reviews that you have from Google.

You want to encourage people to leave positive reviews. This will help boost your search engine results as well. One great thing that this does is when somebody searches for keywords that are closely related to your business or directly searches for your business, your listing will show prominently on the right-hand side in a large box and will have all the information I described earlier, such as your business description, hours operation, and of course, those reviews.

So, what you want to do is head over to Google now create a Google My Business profile or account, and you will be on your way to have your business shown more with search engine results and outshine your competition.
