Tips to Optimize Your Dealership’s Google+ Page

So you've created your dealership's Google+ Brand Page in preparation for the move from Google Places to Google Plus Local...but now what?  Here are some tips for optimizing your dealership's Google+ page:

 

Keep SEO in Mind: When putting information into the "About Us" tab, use relevant keywords. Also use these terms when adding content to your page to help search engines (especially Google) understand what your page is about.  Use "Recommended Links" to send traffic to your dealership's blog and other social media profiles.

 

Have Content Ready: Google recommends having 10-20 posts on your Google+ business page before you really start promoting it.  Recent posts is one of the things they use to judge the quality of your page, so having it full of content once people start visiting it will help.

 

Promote Your Page: Add a Google+ button everywhere you promote your other social media accounts. Allow your website visitors to +1 your inventory and dealership from your site.

 

Incorporate your +1's into AdWords: Google will pull your +1 count into your AdWords campaigns if you link them.  Within your AdWords account, click the Ad Extensions tab. Select "Social Extensions" from the "View" menu, and enter the URL to your Google+ page.  Talk to your dealer website provider or PPC vendor to get more information.

 

Make sure your dealership's Google+ page is optimized and ready for the combination of Google Places into Google Plus Local.
