GMB SEO Benefits Extend to Your Website

One of the biggest perks of GMB Map SEO services from Fortress SEO is that the benefits extend to your website as well. Because your business’ website is connected to your GMB profile, Google factors in profile activity, customer reviews and other elements to add trust and authority to your site.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have a GMB profile if I don’t have a physical business?

One of the great things about GMB profiles is that they can be used for service businesses. Although your company’s address, even a home office address, is used by your profile to determine certain aspects of your listing, you do not need to make your address public. Instead, your service area is displayed on Google Maps for customers to see.

Can you help if my existing GMB has a penalty?

We will be happy to work with you to file the required documentation to appeal penalties and blocks placed on GMB profiles.

Can you get my GMB profile to the top of the map listing?

Like with other SEO services, no company can guarantee a specific placement in search results; however, our time-tested and proven SEO techniques provide the best chance to get listed higher for relevant search terms in your local area.

What if another business has a similar name in my area?

We work on a case-by-case basis for businesses with similar names within a region. Semantics and phonetics come into play in these situations, but we will work with you to ensure your business is differentiated from any business with a similar-sounding name.

Can people call my business through my GMB profile?

Another advantage of having an optimized GMB profile is that customers can call your business directly through your profile. This can be done right from your profile as it appears in search results, meaning you capture a potential customer’s attention while they’re already searching for your products and services. As an added benefit, the GMB service tracks phone calls made through your profile so we can analyze the data and see what is working and what can be improved.

Can pictures and videos be added to my GMB profile?

Yes. In fact, we encourage the inclusion of rich media like photos and short videos as these are powerful tools for SEO and connecting with customers.
