My wife and I have three restaurants and do well with our loyal customers. We just built a new website and are trying to improve not just regular search engines but on mobile too. How do you suggest we go about this on a budget?

Mobile searches have now surpassed regular searches as more and more people are using their mobile devices to search for a local business. Google figured this out years ago and even figured out that users were using Google Maps more than any other search tool to look for a local business. So Google made mobile search results it’s priority and started to put focus on this Maps sector. That being said there are some really simple and affordable steps that you can make to improve your mobile search result on Google Maps. by logging into Google.com/MyBusiness you can claim your listing and manage it. You want to be sure all of your information is complete and correct. You can also take this opportunity to add certain tags and keywords that best describe your business and can dramatically improve these mobile searches.
One of the most important things you could add to your Google Maps Business profile is a Google Maps Street View of the business. This very inexpensive step completes the business listing and adds imagery to the search result and listing within the Google Maps Database. Once you have done this, your search result will display a Google Maps Street View of the inside of the business right on Google Maps. This simple step can sometimes be the holy grail to new local business.
