Googling Your Business

The best way to start using Google to grow your business is to "Google it". Find out what other people see when they do a search. 

When people search for your business what do they see? Do you rank first in the search results? Are you even on the first page? If you're not on the first page you have work to do. Start by setting up your Google Page so that Google knows you are open for business.
