The power of Google My Business

Google My Business has the ability to generate tons of visibility and leads for your business. And here’s what I’ve noticed over the last 5+ years of managing Local SEO for 100+ clients

The majority of engagement for any given keyword occurs as a result of Local 3-Pack from Google My Business. In many cases, it generates nearly 4x more calls and form fills than a website.

Here’s an example of Google’s Local Pack result:

So what’s this mean?

Google My Business generates the majority of visibility and calls for local businesses.

And here’s why…

The (Sad) State of Local Results

For most local searches, Google now displays this set of results:

  1. Local Services Ads (LSAs)
  2. Google Ads (formerly known as AdWords)
  3. Local 3-Pack
  4. People Also Ask
  5. Local Organic Results
  6. Google Ads (yes, another Ads result)
  7. Related Searches

Here’s a visual of the SERPs that shows all of the above.

Note: SERPs have been quite volatile following recent updates, and there is likely more variance now for where Local 3-Pack shows in local results.

Ranking #1 in Local Organic Results is the 10th result on the page when Google displays LSAs and Google Ads results. This is why focusing on ranking Google My Business listings in the Local 3-Pack is super important (it has the most visibility and generates the most results because of it).
