Each search engine, like google or yahoo, has a scoring system they use to determine which business they will show in the #1 position. Will it be you? Or, will it be your competition? One of the ways to score big points for your company is by gathering lots of great reviews for your company, online, and consistently over time. Just like us, the search engines look for signals that tell them when a company is doing well and should be moved up in the rankings so more people can find it. Reviews are one of the most powerful ways to do that! If we constantly hear good things about a local business over a long period of time, then we’re probably going to trust that business. If the search engines constantly see good reviews of a local business over a long period of time, then they will also be impressed and move your business up towards the #1 spot where you will be able to thrive in the market and gain new business. In fact, you may even attract some of your competitor’s loyal customers! Schedule your free consultation below!
