Google likes Businesses Optimised for Local Search!

Google Places for Business will literally place your business on the map so customers can find your physical address (or service area). Your business information including a description, phone number and hours of operation can also be listed with a few photos of the business’s location. 

Verified listings allow your business to receive reviews and ratings, and interact with your customers.

You can easily manage and control all of your business information that is seen on Google from your Places for Business Dashboard.

How will it help my business and how does it work?

According to Google, about one in five online searches are local, so one of the best ways to boost sales and enquiries is to get your business seen by those living or working nearby to you.

This is a great local search tool that organises results around specific locations. It's valuable features make it easy for your customers to find and interact with you!

Here is an example:

Bob, the local Pizza place owner, has setup Places for Business. A potential customer Google's "Pizza" for their area. A list of local businesses come up in the search results.

On hover, the map displays beside the listings with further details such as opening hours, directions, reviews and ratings... just the right information the customer needs to fulfill his wish and purchase the pizza!

The process

We need your Google account and basic contact information to setup your page and submit your listing. 
If you don't have a Google account, we will create one for you. After the setup process, we guide you through the phone verification of your listing.

We adhere to the Google Places Quality Guidelines to make sure;

  • the listing is complete and accurate
  • the most appropriate, specific categories for your business are chosen
  • that we establish a strong, accurate presence on the web

Ongoing management

Should your business details, preferences or location change, these can easily be updated by you from your dashboard. 

Or Tripledash can do this for you at $97/hr.


How will people find my business?
Millions of people search for businesses on Google. Your listing will also be available through Google Web Search, Google Maps, Mobile search, Google Earth, and Google+.

On any of these services, if someone searches directly for your business name and city, your listing will most likely show up. Google may show your listing for searches for your business category or other related terms.

What if I run my business from my home?
It's fine if you don't want people seeing your home address. All you need to do is hide your address by simply selecting: "Yes, this business serves customers at their locations" under the "Service Areas and Location Settings" section of your dashboard, and then select the "Do not show my business address on my Maps listing" option.

How can I make the most of my listing on Google?
A rich listing which features a description, several photos, business hours and a link to your website will help encourage potential customers to choose your service.

This extra information can also help Google match your listing to more searches, which might increase the number of views your listing gets. It is also recommend that you mention your Google listing to current and potential customers.  Remind them that they can use Google Maps to find your phone number and address, get driving directions to your store, rate your business, leave a review, or get recent updates.

How can I advertise my business locally on Google?
AdWords Express is an advertising option for businesses that want to get started quickly. It's ideal for business owners who don't have a lot of time to manage their online advertising and only want to advertise locally.
