Over 35% of NSW Law Firms haven’t claimed their Google My Business Listing.

 

In a world that is constantly connected our first interaction to learn something new almost always begins with a Google search. You may have noticed when searching for restaurants, cafes, gyms, and even law firms, results high up on the first page are those which are located closest to your current location or the location you have specified in your search and displayed on a map within the search results. This is referred to as the local listing pack, which all starts with a Google My Business (GMB) listing.

With such rich and relevant content available at the fingertips of Google users, it is mind boggling to see that only 64% of firms have actually claimed and verified their GMB listing to display for local searches.

It’s very simple to claim a listing. Simply click on the “Own this business?” link and follow the prompts to claim your business listing.
