Google My Business
Google My Business (GMB) can help your practice’s ranking on Google in local search, and enhance your presence in Maps.
What does Practice Growth do for my GMB listing?
- Claim and optimize: We claim your GMB listing(s) to then optimize it based on Google’s guidelines with accurate information and photos.
- Consolidate listings: We search for duplicate listings across the web to check that there is one listing for each location and provider. This follows Google’s best practices, and ensures that patient reviews are going to the correct, optimized listing.
- Publish posts weekly: The more activity your GMB listing has (ie reviews, Google posts, Q&A), the better chance of ranking higher in the local three-pack and organic local rankings.
“Owner” access is shared with Practice Growth. This allows us to manage Google Posts and be able to reach out to Google support on your behalf in order to update your (listing) as needed.
Yelp is the leading consumer review site for businesses, and it holds high priority on Google search results. We optimize your location Yelp page(s) by updating with accurate practice and contact information.
Ownership/Manager level access allows Practice Growth to optimize and to clean up duplicate listings that might confuse potential patients and search engines alike.
