Create a Google Place Page and Help Get Your Website Found

These days “Just Google It!” is more relevant than Nike’s infamous “Just Do It” campaign. Most people “Just Google it” to find businesses, addresses, phone numbers and other information about products and services. Search engines simplify our lives, and Google clearly dominates the field. But guess what? Google is only as smart as we make it. This article explains the how you can provide Google with information about your store, and help customers find your business and website – and, by the way, it’s totally free.

Your Imagine Retailer website has many built-in features that make it easy for your customers to come and find you when they surf the web, but there are other methods you should also use to increase your internet exposure. These strategies are called Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and they move your website to the top of the list of search results and attract more people to your site. You can pay for SEO campaigns, just like you pay for advertising campaigns, but this series of articles shows you no-cost and low-cost ways you can maximize your website investment.

Google Maps and Google Places will put your business on the map, literally. The “Contact Us” page on your Imagine Retailer website already includes a Google map, but you should also complete the free registration for Google Places. You must have a free Google account to register your business, and the process is confirmed by mail in 12-21 days to ensure that your location is “real” and you are the real owner.

Getting Started. Put your business on the map by visiting Google Places at http://places.google.com/business. You will need to enter your gmail address and password in the areas below:
