With the combination of Google Places with Google+, maintaining your business listing is more important than ever.

COCG has the experience and knowledge you need to claim, enhance and leverage Google Plus for your marketing initiatives. Whether you’re interested in setting up a brand page or multiple locations, or working with us to implement Google Authorship, we’re here to help!

Google+ and SEO

Studies show that “+1s” correlate with higher search rankings. Running a Google Plus page for a brand is similar in ways to a Facebook page. It’s a great place to share content, such as new blogs, press releases and videos, to help them pick up +1s.

Additionally, maintaining your business information in one central location helps solidify your citation profile. Many 3rd party citation sites use Google Plus as the source for their information, so ensuring that your information is up to date on Google+ helps ensure it’s up-to-date in other places, too.

Google+ and Multiple Locations

With Google Places rolling in to Google Plus, it’s important to revisit your locations to be sure everything is Google Plus ready. If you claimed your location in the past, it may have become unverified during the transition. Luckily, Google Plus makes it easy to claim and enhance your business listings.

At COCG, we’ve claimed hundreds of listings for clients nationwide. Our local SEO experts are here to help every step of the way, from claiming to enhancing to managing your Google Plus listings.

Google Authorship

Working with Google Plus also allows businesses to set up Google Authorship on their website. Google Authorship is a great way to help your website stand out in the search engine results page and build trust as an industry thought leader. Learn more

Comprehensive Social Media Marketing

Google Plus is a great resource, but it is only one part of a comprehensive social media marketing strategy. For the best results, we recommend combining it with Facebook, Twitter, and other social network management services to help present a unified brand image to your customers.
