Google offers so many services it is hard to keep up with them all. One service is business listings which is used much like the yellow pages but on line. Not sure if this is relevant? Ask people you know how many use the actual yellow-pages vs. Google to find businesses anymore.
Again, (thereâ€™s a theme this month) you need to own the information on the web about you. This is a simple way to make sure everything is correct. It also makes sure you are on the Google maps system correctly. That may seem like no big deal, but if your business was entered incorrectly, people donâ€™t have a good idea of where you are. Also there have been some problems with the system lately and several business listings have been combined. Add and manage your business profile on Google at www.google.com/local/add.
The Google Profiles are the same type of thing for individuals. You can put your information into www.google.com/profiles/me and have a definite presence on the web. The other good news is Google is putting these profiles into page one search results automatically.
So create these profiles and be sure the information is accurate!
