00:12 – We have a great question from a viewer: “Why do I have a personal google + page and a business google + page both that have the same content?” – Well first off, there are both business and personal accounts associated with Google. In terms of business, you will want to separate your content so that you 1) do not have duplicate content 2) can give a professional appearance to those potential customers searching for you on the web 3) and provide business information that you couldn’t otherwise supply on your personal page.
00:22 – Updating and optimizing all aspects of your Google My Business listing page can not only make you look more professional, but will allow the Google Bots to crawl your page and supply their servers with lots of good “SEO Juice” to help get found online! Depending on your business, the better it will help your rankings.
00:29 – A simple contact form for general use is very important to allowing potential leads or customers, contact you on the fly. A lot of businesses overlook this simple way of getting into contact. Make sure to not have a LARGE contact form as that is a turn off to most users. Just obtain the bare essentials needed to follow up with them. Name, phone number, email and a brief message is a great start.
00:32 – Page speed insights is a great, FREE, tool that will give you technical tips and tricks on what you can fix and improve on your site to optimize it for search. https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/
00:34 – Call to action forms and buttons: You want to have call to action buttons and forms on almost all pages, however they need to often be related to the content on your website.
00:41 – Duplicate Google My Business listings can hurt your online presence in the form of actually confusing the Google servers to the point that they do not know which profile is the correct listing. There is no human behind the Google bots that help determine which listing is correct. Therefore it is important to make sure you do not have any duplicate listings.
