Did you know that Google is now ranking therapists’ Google+ pages ABOVE established 10 year old web sites? They’re even ranking Google+ pages above the likes of Yelp and PsychologyToday.com!
While there are several ways to have your practice appear at the top of Google’s search results, one of the easiest by far is by creating a Google+ page for your business. Better yet, doing so is free. That’s right, Google is giving away some of its most valuable search engine real estate!
Google has stated that 1 out of every 5 searches on Google is related to a location (e.g. “Italian restaurants in Long Beach”). We’ve seen more recent research suggesting the number is closer to 2 out of every 5 searches, if not more. Given the volume of search traffic Google receives, that’s more than 400 million local searches every day conducted by people looking for products or services in their area … And you can bet some of them are looking for you.
Given that you own a business (your private practice) that provides services to consumers in your local area, shouldn’t you be taking full advantage of the benefits of Google+ pages?
This step-by-step guide will show you not only how to set up your Google+ pages, but also optimize them for greater visibility so you can drive more quality traffic to your practice’s website and your practice’s front door.
