Google My Business also gives the possibility to understand and expand your presence by giving you insights on how customers searched for you and where they come from. Also, once you register on Google My Business, your business automatically appears on Google Maps! 

The Google My Business feature with rankingCoach 

As you know by now, it is essential for all SMEs to be listed in Google My Business. Therefore, rankingCoach has decided to make sure you would not miss this important step of your SEO strategy by including a new Google My Business feature to all its subscriptions.  

Thanks to its partnership with Google, rankingCoach enables you to create and manage your Google My Business entry easily. 

It is important that all customers have access to your business information, such as: website URL, opening and closing times, phone number and street address. Just to name a few! Businesses that verify their information with Google My Business are more likely to be considered reputable by customers.  You only have to follow four easy steps to get this right. 

It is very important to understand and expand your online presence. The insights of Google My Business will show you how customers used Search and Maps to find your listing and what they do once they found it. rankingCoach provides this data all from one overview. You can simply click on “Reports” in the left menu and then on “Google My Business”. You can view how customers searched for your Google business listing, where customers view your business on Google, the customers actions (visiting your website, request directions and call you) and the total phone calls per day. 

Whereas the Google My Business platform gives you insights as far back as 3 months, on rankingCoach, you will have access to your Google My Business insights over the last 12 months. Please note that there could be slight differences in data between the two platforms for the same period of time since Google My Business bases its monthly calculation on approximately 28 days and rankingCoach bases it on 30 or 31 days according to the month.
