A Typical Google Search Result
The 3 Sectors are;
Sector 1: Paid Google Adverts (PPC – Pay Per Click Ads). Which are above
Sector 2: FREE Google My Business Page listings.
The FREE Google My Business Page listing are the highest position you can get without paying Google for the position.
To Rank above your competitors you need;
- High Scoring Reviews
- A High number of Reviews
- Recent Reviews (old reviews don’t carry the same importance)
However your Google My Business Page needs to be set up properly and optimised. We can also help with that!
Sector 3 are Organic listing
Organic listings are *Free! meaning you don’t pay Google for the position.
However as you can see from this screen shot the top 2 Organic listing are paid ‘Auto Guru’ group listings and those business pay for that privilege of that position.
So an Organic listing may not always be a true *FREE position in a Google Search.
