Hi there!

I am creating  a GMB page for one of my friend who recently started Web designing company in Brisbane.

He is based in Brisbane and have office and 5-10 staff in Brisbane , however He says that he serves to clients all over the Australia.

While creating GMB page there is an option : "I deliver goods and services to my customers at their location"

I am wondering if Web designing service is regarded as Service area business if they cater to clients all over the country ?

Thank you

Hi Nirmal


Although a web designer can be considered to be a local service area business, if they visit customers at their location setting an Australia wide service area will not help them rank outside of their immediate physical location.


If your friend wishes to rank in a broader geographic area then they need to be using Organic SEO rather than Local SEO.
