So you wanna know how to get listed on the front page of Google, but you’re not an SEO Ninja? Well here’s a really easy, simple way to get your business listed at the top of search engines locally, and it works everytime if you do it properly. Google Places is a listing service that allows small businesses, or large ones, to get listed on Google Maps on search terms in your local market. I’ve included a video below that shows you step by step what you need to do. This will work for Network Marketing businesses, landscaping, insurance, telecom, real estate, you name it…it works, and its FREE! No catch
First think about the category your business falls under.

What You Need To Get Free Advertising On Google
Before you jump in and find out how to get listed on the front page of Google you will need to have these things:
An account with Google.
A short description of your business for when a user clicks on your business name.
The phone number(s), addresses and any other contact information you want to advertise. Remember that the phone number will show up on the results page.
A logo and/or image(s) of your business and products.
Follow the simple steps provided by Google. You will be asked to verify your business by phone or SMS, and now they are sending postcards from Google to verify your business. A good tip is to to not put your full address into Google but rather the largest town in your area if possible. (Think work address instead of home address maybe) For example I live about 10 minutes outside of Knoxville, TN and not as many people would search for “website design lenoir city’ as they would “website design knoxville”. I also do not want to show my home address on Google Maps as I freelance from home so this is a good way around it.
Come back in a few weeks and see if your listing is up. It should take about 2 weeks for you to get a postcard from Google with the code you need to enter.
You will then want to ask your friends and family to give you recommendations on your business until you have the most recommendations in your niche. This will move you ahead of your competitors because recommendation count matters from what I can tell.
You will want to add pictures, a website address, and videos really help as well. If you don’t have a good video marketing plan, please let me know. It’s critical these days on the internet, and what I specialize in. Visit one of my favorite sites here for more info on a cool marketing service.
