How Important is Google Places?
Google continues to focus their search results on local businesses. As we work with our clients and help them with organic search engine optimization, it is becoming clear that a high rank on Google Places is even more important than organic search results for local businesses. One of our clients is BJ Plumbing in Orem and American Fork Utah. Their Google Places search impressions have doubled over the last year. Part of the increase is a result of the optimization we are doing on their places page but a large part of the increase is because Google is positioning Places listings above the organic search results. We have positioned BJ Plumbing in the #1 position on organic but if we had not also achived a #1 rank on Google Places their organic search result would be below numerous other Places listings for plumbing companies in Orem.
