Respond to Online Reviews
One of the easiest ways to improve your online footprint is to become a part of the conversation surrounding your business. Where are people talking about you? In review sections on Google, Yelp and other web directories. These often auto generated listings provide consumers a place to share experiences, both positive and negative, with other shoppers. Responding to negative and positive reviews lets potential customers know you care about what they have to say and are willing to address possible issues. Doing so also ensures you have a voice in matters when people make possibly unjust claims about your business. Interacting with customers in this way can improve visibility because search engines incorporate reviews and responses to them into search results.
SEO your Web Presence
SEO is a term that gets tossed around a lot. Most people understand that search engine optimization is beneficial to improving the chances of a website being found organically, but with the right tactics it can be advantageous elsewhere too. Too boost offsite SEO, consider updating the descriptions of your social media channels to include relevant keywords to increase their search ranking. You can do the same for your directory listings on Google, Yelp, Yellow Pages and so forth by claiming and updating them too. While you’re at it, make sure that all of the information on these auto-generated listings is correct. Double check your phone number, website, physical address and even the business name. Inconsistent information across directory listings can decrease your search ranking. By improving your on and offsite SEO, you’ll be more likely to be found online, which ultimately translates into more dollars spent at your business.
