NAP – Name, Address Phone Number

The second actionable item is also pretty basic: make sure your NAP or Name, Address, Phone number exactly matches on your GMB listing and your website. Be sure that every place your address is listed, matches (Bing, Yelp, etc) You’d be surprised how often it is overlooked. And this means if Google says Suite B, then your website should be Suite B – not Ste B or St #B. 

Completely fill out your listing

Third item is filling out your listing completely and thoroughly, keeping your keywords in mind. Your listing includes, categories, cities, services, products, description, attributes, photos, and more. Before you fill it all out, think about maximizing your “home” location potential and the cities you service. Mention key products or services in your description, as well as your location.
