At 1:41 in the video, I mention the importance of keywords video. Don’t miss the How to add Keywords to Google My Business article if you need some additional support.
Keywords for GMB are normally poorly added and cause one of the biggest areas of confusion for uneducated web masters. Many business owners have no idea how to locate the correct keywords for the listing and even worse, think spamming Google will work based on what a mate told them.
But Google isn’t saying avoid them at all costs. If you notice in the video and if you do a search, many useful keywords are now highlighted and stand out in bold. Yes, Google sees that as helpful to a potential client, so try thinking it through a clients points of view and you will be in the right frame of mind to address the balance Google supports.
Words that seem to get picked up during my video included:

Below are the factors Google considers important
Simply put, think of what questions your customers keep asking and then write informative answers. Keep in mind the importance of Towns, cities and area names. In my case, if someone searches for a Bournemouth Web Designer, they also may put a Christchurch Web designer which is a town just 2 miles away. Both towns are relevant, both can be optimised using the Q and A section.
The fact Google allows you to answer and ask is a very interesting twist. So think about the factors Google loves and you can optimise the answer to cover just that.
I am based in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area. So feel free to contact me if you are a local. But I have many loyal clients in many other areas an don’t just limit myself to local web design work. So if you need to build your business correctly, you need to optimise it by care and by hand. Feel free to follow any of my free tutorials on Youtube, or better still book a consultation with me and I will do my best to give you the right advice tailored for your business.
