Google Business Profile Optimization Tips



Does Google care about your Facebook Page?


This week we’re going to address whether Google cares about your business’s social media profiles, including the ones on Facebook, Instagram, X, and Pinterest. You may recall reading in our newsletter a few months ago that Google now asks for your social links, whereas previously, they’d try to scrape them themselves. Moreover, Google now shows them more reliably in search results on your Google Business Profile.


Our SEO strategy is simple: if Google is investing valuable developer hours into a feature, it's likely they consider that data important. Currently, we’re conducting a test to determine if social media activity, such as following and likes, or other metrics influence the ranking of a Google Business Profile. While we await the results, we recommend adding your social media links to your Google Business Profile as a precaution. Stay tuned for the results in a few months.


To add your social media links, go to https://business.google.com, click ‘Edit profile’ then add them under ‘Social profiles’.


Speaking of rank factors, our Founder (Justin) is co-hosting a webinar titled “Automate All Your SEO with AI” in a few weeks with the co-Founder of a leading AI website SEO company, Adaptify. Be sure to RSVP for that webinar here.


If you’re wondering what we could possibly know about automating SEO with AI, you must not have seen our new fully automated Google Maps marketing platform, Paige.
