Saturday, November 28th, 2009

According to our research, adding location keywords such as city names to Local Business Listing Custom Fields helps getting your website listed within a 10-pack listing, but this seems like a secondary factor.

Local phone number and Google Maps SEO

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Phone number is one of the ways the Google Maps algorithm determines how to map your business in Google Maps. There are many multiple businesses at the same address (different suite #s) with different phone numbers and Google keeps them distinct, so this should be one of the important factors. In addition, Google seems to not value a cell phone number as it used to. If you don’t have a landline phone, and provide services such as delivery or repair services, then, you can use the feature of “Service Areas and  Location Settings” in your Local Business Listing (LBL).

Multiple addresses on website contact page

Friday, November 20th, 2009

This shouldn’t be a problem, but just in case, I would make sure if the 1st address and phone number is the one you want factoring into your LBC ranking. For instance, we do have three offices, but definately, our headquater, the most important location should come first. Some say “use a separate landing page for each physical address and phone number.” If you have a separate phone number for each location, it’d be more effective to Google maps optimization (Google maps SEO). Check other Google maps algorithm.
