Google Places Optimization for Auto Repair

One of the most common questions that I get from Auto Repair Shops  is “How do I get my auto repair shop to show up on the Google Map?” Below is my Google Places Strategy that has helped get my Auto Repair clients to the first page of Google for their services in their local area:

  • Claim your Google Places Page. To claim your local listing on Google you need to visit and set up your listing. Click here for step-by-step instructions for claiming your Google Places Page.
  • Build out your Google Places Page. Add your Website Address – This will create an important inbound link. Upload PHOTOS – AS MANY AS POSSIBLE – Use personal Photos – Pictures of yourself (the owner), Pictures of Your Staff, Pictures of the Office, Pictures of Your Trucks, Your Logo, Coupons, Pictures of your work. People Connect & Resonate With People. Leverage that in your Map Listing. Upload a Video if you have one (If you don’t – Get one made!). List your hours of operation & services offered. ADD a Coupon.

  • Get Reviews! A major component of placement in the Google Map listings is the number of reviews for your company. Put a procedure in place to consistently solicit reviews from your happy customers. We help our clients train their employees to keep their eyes and ears open for Happy Customers and then provide those happy customer with a “Share The Love Card”. This is a simple business card with a link to there Google Places page where they can quickly log-in and write a positive review for the business.
