Hi @Darcy L,

 

With regards to Google My Business and being found online more, please review this Google Help File

 

With regards to being found online more via your website... this is a rather complex issue generally not covered here, but since I do have expertise in this area, I will provide some basics to get you going in the right direction. 

 

Once a small business create a website, they must work on making that website a great user experience for visitors. How do they do that? They provide a well-structured website with relevant content presented on a fast-loading and mobile-responsive, modern website. It also must not have errors or issues that harm a visitor or that prevents Google from crawling your website. 

 

You should also be using Google Analytics and Google Search Console to better understand what is happening with your website. 

 

Once Google Search Console is reviewed, let's check up on your site speed, mobile-friendliness and some SEO (search engine optimization) stuff. 

 

1) Visit Google Search Console.

2) Use the Google Develoeprs Speed Test and work on fixing the issues so that your score is 89 or higher for both mobile & desktop.

3) Rerun the Google Speed Test but use this tool instead. Make sure you have a mobile score of 100.

4) Run your site through this SEO score checker.

5) Visit Google Analytics and setup your website.

 

Utilize the steps as they are outlined. Visit #1 and dig into your website actions with Google. Use #2 to bring your score up and get any optimized content to download & use. Complete everything and then go to #3. Complete everything and go to step #4. Now go to step #5 and dig into what is actually happening with visitors and your website.

 

From here, you need to have a strong and consistent social presence that is updated with content related to your products & services. And you need to utilize a local online presence by being listed on local directories (YP, BBB, etc.). And all of your online information needs to be consistent and correct.

 

All of this will be a continual process of repeating the above steps 2-3 times per month for the life of your business.  

 

Please let us know what you discover and enjoy the process.

 

King Regards,

 

James

Thank you James!

I did go through Google Help file, and made sure all the business information is correct and completed. So, that does not seem to be the problem and yet Keyword searching still does not bring my business up.

I am mainly wanting my business to appear when individuals are searching "financial advisor, insurance, investments etc."

Let me know what I am doing not correctly here thanks!
