Winning with Google Business

Today, local SEO (search engine optimization) is about winning with Google Business Profiles (GBP). This does not mean winning on your brand name since Google takes care of that. True winning with GBP is ranking high for non-branded, category search. One of the best ways to rank high on non-branded search, is to take advantage of GBP Categories. If a competitor is out-ranking you on Google search or Google Maps, it may be related to their category choices? With GMBspy, you can peer into the competitor GBP Categories to see why they might be outranking you for key search terms.
