How to Optimise your website for Google 3-pack

We are now in an age where the majority of people have a smartphone, making it easy for anyone to quickly research anything via mobile search. If someone requires a coffee, they can Google “coffee shop” and 3 nearby results will be the first thing they see. In many cases, this is where the search will end. Any business that does not pop up will not receive a visit from that customer. This is why it is essential for you to optimise your website for Google 3-pack.

Optimise your website for the Google 3-pack: Don’t miss out by simply focusing on analytics

Many consumers are searching for businesses via mobile before they decide which location they should visit in person. According to RetailDive, 2 out of 3 consumers perform online research before physically entering a shop.

While most businesses are aware that they should pay attention to their analytics, they often forget about online research, including local listings. While 75 per cent of consumers use a business’s website to help make a decision, 87 per cent also consider local listings.

Digging deeper to understand how your local search ranking affects face-to-face business is key to understanding how to use local SEO for real-life traffic. According to a study by Sparktoro, 62 per cent of local mobile searches do not result in click-through rates. What’s more, Rio SEO discovered that in recent data from enterprise clients, only 1 in 60 Map Pack views resulted in a click-through to a website.

a testimonial or two…

Since working with Jason from Search and More we have built up an excellent relationship with both him and his company. We truly feel that they are interested and committed to improving our on-line presence. From creating our weekly blogs right through to totally re-designing our website to ensure that it is ‘mobile friendly’. I would say that Search and More have become an integral part of our business and I would recommend their services whole heartedly.
