Submitting to Google Maps should be a high priority because many business owners use Google Maps to do business searches. When using Google Maps to search for business citations for geo relevancy, make sure that you include your Citation in your search engine results as well. Many people simply search for a business name and then insert their Citation into their search box to help narrow down their results.
Citations for geo relevancy – Submitting to Google Maps should be a high priority
Lastly, it should be said that your Citation should be relevant to your Geoscience Field. You can do this by making sure your Citation comes from a place within your business or industry. For example, if you are in the construction business, then you can submit your Citation to Google Maps under the category “Geology,” which will allow you to display in Google Maps the information provided on the map. In addition to providing relevant data, geocoding allows you to include a link back to your website for SEO purposes. By adding the geo-targeting link as a hyperlink in your Citation, it’s easy to include the hyperlink in your bio as well as in your website.
As you can see, geocoding your Citation really helps you add value to your website as well as to your Geoscience Field. If you’re not quite sure about what the encoding is, then I highly recommend downloading Google Geocaching Tools and starting to Geocaching!
