Want to display your products & services on the first page of Google, don’t we all!? How’s about FOR FREE!?? I’ve just recently discovered this and couldn’t wait to share it with you, my loyal reader. So let’s get straight to it.
Firstly you need a Google My Business listing to do this, if you’re not sure if you have one just Google your business name and it should show up on the top right-hand side of the home page. Like so:
If it doesn’t then you need to get in touch with us right away & we’ll help you out.
As you can see this is a very prominent position and only recently has Google added even more features here, including a large and very attractive ‘Products & Services’ section. Seen here:
Which has a link ‘Order Online’ which I think is FANTASTIC, god only knows what this could do for your SEO but I’ll be sure to be testing it!
When you click the ‘Order Online’ link it opens a lightbox pop up window which displays even more information and then another link button to take the viewer directly to your website!
How fucking cool is that!!??
Ok, so how do we achieve this? As I mentioned before, you will need a Google My Business listing for your own business. These are FREE and pretty easy to set up.
So now we have our GMB listing all we need to do is add our products and services to it. Note: I’m not sure how many Google will show on the home page as I’ve not tested it yet but you better believe I will be testing the shit out of this and updating you guys as soon as…
Adding Your Products And Services To Google My Business
Really simple, just log in to your GMB dashboard and navigate to Posts, here you can post various different types of content & I would suggest totally optimising this as much as possible, as soon as possible, but for today we are only going to add to ‘Products’ So click on ‘Write Your Post’ and a pop up will appear.
Click on ‘Product’ and yet another pop up will appear. Bear with me… Now I’ll assume that you have a stunning image and some amazing copy about your products and services so go ahead here and fill all the information out as much as possible, the more the better!
So once that’s done click on ‘Add a button’ and this magic pop up shall appear:
So next we click ‘Order Online’ which will allow us to add a link DIRECT to our website, SHA…TING!
