My greetings to forum members!

Well, everyone's perception initially strikes that "a google my business listing serves the surrounding locations people" and i have certain things which i'm requesting this forum community to share you views on how exactly it works.

How does google my business provides listing when user request for service?
Is it like google counts more user reviews to result or distance it covered from user to business

Is good reviews from customers works in terms of optimization or is it just for new users view and trust on us?

What if your service area is not present in google my business submission form?

I was initially worried when i tried listing my business on google my business while filling online form where my exact service area in not present in its predefined category. So i wondered is there any more related category of my business.

So, my business is "TV wall mounting service" and it is not present where my run didn't stop there, as i need the listing. Then i thought of to search for related categories and i came to see a "Televsion repair service" and think how could it help as i won't do TV repairs.

Then i don't have choice other than taking this category and finally my listing has been verified. But after i don't have many views for this listing as i put my "business name" which are not exactly the keywords that users type in google search. After i got to change my business name to keyword followed by business name like "keyword - business name" and it works to some extent.

Well i want forum members to share their experience am i doing right? and what all other techniques works better for me get it on top. Where my competitors listings putting me down.


Thank you,
Pavan Kumar
Aspired Digital marketer.

the business Google

Google recommends you as the business owner claim your own local listing in Google Places for Business. When we handle this process for our clients, we create a new GMAIL address and use that to setup the listing. We then use that same account for verifying all the other important internet business directory listings we do for them.

It's a very good question but the answer is little tricky.

Regarding, picking a right category for your business - Television Repair Service is a good choice to get customers. But if you also provide another service then pick category as a local business.

Citation - You need to add your business to other local directories / yellow pages such as sulekha.com, just dial, bing maps & foursquare. This will increase the credibility for your business location. (Google it "Local Citation website")

Reviews Collect at least 2 reviews every week from your customers

NAP Use proper Name Address Pin code. (Consistency is must - use same address everywhere)

Thanks for the great question!
