How To Make Your Customers Do Your SEO Work For You

This week we’re going to cover the only way to have your customers do your Google Maps SEO work for you. It’s pretty simple! Here's the deal: Google is now strongly prioritizing businesses that have keywords from user searches in their customer reviews. Yep, that means if your customer raved about your “best chicken soup in Los Angeles” in their review, you’ve got a golden ticket to the top 3 spots on Google Maps when someone searches for “soup Los Angeles.”

Reviews have always been crucial for your Google Business Profile (GBP/GMB), but now they’re more powerful than ever. This change means that what your customers say about you can directly impact your rankings for different search terms. It’s like having your customers do your SEO for you!

Here Is How You Can Leverage This Finding:

The Hard Way: Encourage Detailed Reviews. Ask your customers to mention specific products or services they enjoyed. For example, “I loved the spicy ramen at Chickety Chicken Soup Co. in Los Angeles!”

The Easy Way: Use Paige’s Suggested Reviews feature, which can craft keyword-optimized reviews for your customers. All they have to do is copy, paste, and post! Using Paige’s Suggested Reviews, you can:

  • Automate the process: Let Paige generate review suggestions tailored to your business and popular keywords.

  • Boost your rankings: Watch your business soar to the top of search results for tons of different keywords.

It’s so simple that not giving it a try would be, well, a little silly. And the best part? You can test out all of Paige's features for just $1 with a 3-day trial here. See Suggested Reviews in action here.
