This article will explain why you should integrate WordPress and Google Maps especially if you own a brick and mortar business. [Factoid] WordPress powers 14.7% of the top million websites in the world and 22 out of every 100 new active domains in the US are running WordPress. We all know how huge and important it is to get your Google Places listing ranked high in the local SERPs.
Who uses WordPress?
WordPress and Google Maps is not just for small business owners either. The big brands use WordPress to showcase their content, build their email lists, capture leads and present their value proposition using the WordPress platform.
WordPress and Google Maps Secrets
A little know SEO secret technique not readily available to most small businesses is that, once your WordPress and Google Maps listing are optimized and synced up, you will have in place, the perfect combination for getting your Business Ranked at the Top of Google Maps SERPs. Not only that, but using this little known technique, you can do this for multiple target keyword phrases.
For example, after making a few modifications to my WordPress and Google Maps listing, I was able to get ranked at the top of the local SERPs for “local search marketing“. To my surprise, my improved Google Maps ranking took a little over 1 week to happen!
Target Multiple Keywords
With WordPress, you can target multiple keywords (Categories) so your Google Maps listing will Rank at the top of the Local SERPs for more than one target keyword phrase.
For example, I was able to get ranked in the Google Maps 5 Pack for:
- Local Search Marketing Los Angeles (A position)
- Video Marketing Los Angeles (B position)
- Social Media Marketing Los Angeles (D position)
These are some pretty competitive keyword phrases. After all, Los Angeles is the 2nd largest City in the USA and let me tell you, there are more than a few guys vying for a 5 Pack ranking in Google Places for these keywords.
