Taking the top spot in Google Maps requires a well-planned out marketing strategy. When people search for the best business places, and if your place pops up in the top list, it will boost your business' growth. Along with the Google Map, there are chances to appear on the top search results of Google. Here are a few tips to rank higher on Google Maps in 2020.
Claim the business listing
Once you add your business to the Google listing, you need to claim it by providing information about your business.
Launch the Google Map or visit the official Google Map website from a browser.
Search your business name and open it.
Select Claim this business/Own this business.
Continue to create a business account if you do not have one and claim your business.
More information can take you to the top of the search result.
Open your Google Business account on the browser.
Under Info, fill in the details which include name, address, category, service, special service, attributes, and description.
