Why do you need a Google Business Profile?
When your profile is optimised to help locals find what they need, you have a higher chance on showing up in their search results.
Optimising your profile doesn’t just get you in more search results. It can help lift where you are in line with your competitors too.
More eyes on your Google Business Profiles with relevant information means more people who will be contacting your business.
And of course, getting and responding to reviews helps show these searchers exactly what to expect when they reach out to your business.
In just 12 months, Hire Pro on the Gold Coast received more than 11,000 actions (including enquiries, map views, etc.) on their Google Business Profile. This engagement with their business was crucial for not only surviving, but growing, despite facing major competitors and lockdowns.
By working with Localsearch, Hire Pro was also able to grow their business with a 41% Google Ads conversion rate, more than 2 million views on search engines, 270+ impressions of their Facebook Ads and more. Explore how we used these local marketing strategies to help the Mudgeeraba hire equipment business stand out in the crowd.
When Google is deciding what to show locals searching for businesses, they’re judging web pages by their relevance to the query, distance to the user, authority of the business and the quality of the page. Google Business Profile is one of the ways the search engine verifies this information, so it’s crucial your profile is up to date.
Your location, category, posts, photos, reviews and other information on your Google Business Profile help to know who you are, where you are, what you do and if you’re respected in your community. Having your website linked also helps Google (and users) follow through to your site to know this is your website and the information should be attributed to you — therefore, helping increase your potential for being shown in search results.

You need a Google Business Profile for your business to show up on Google Maps. To show up higher in the list of businesses, you will need to optimise your profile and keep it up to date.
For people to find your eligible business on Google Maps, they will need to search for what you do, where you do it.
Claiming your Google Business Profile helps your business show up in the local pack on Google Search and Google Maps. This means when someone searches for the products or services you provide in your area on Google, you have a good chance of getting in front of them. Optimising your profile helps increase your chances of being seen.
When you have claimed your Google Business Profile, you can see how many people have viewed your profile, what type of device they viewed your profile on (like mobile or desktop), if they saw you on Google Search or Google Maps, what people were searching for and more. You cannot see the exact people who viewed your profile.
For those with Nucleus by Localsearch, you can track your performance in your dashboard.
You should be posting on your Google Business Profile at least once a week. What you should post will depend on your business, but you’ll generally want to be posting new updates about your business, tips to help your customers, offers and more.
At Localsearch, we can look after your posting for you, so you don’t have to remember to create and publish posts to keep your profile optimised. Request your free quote today.
