    - Write your company description with keywords more than 700 words
    - Upload post every alternate days
    - Ask your clients to write reviews for your service
    - Add images of your business

    Add labels and keyword reach description.
    tell your friends to write reviews for your listing and stay active on review it shows you really care about your business.

    Yeah but thr labels only give 2 options which are not relevant..
    The description and reviews are obvious. What about external factors that help boost the gmb?

    The gmb is embedded in the contact page, has schema markup relevant for the business, did directories and always adding more (though citations dont boost like they used to) looking also for local sites to submit.. i am looking for something that few people do that gives an edge. The site ranks organically at position 4 for the target keyword, thr gmb is stuck in position 12

    Try to build dozens of web 2.0s with embed G maps showing directions from your local city to your business. Then GSA blast the web 2.0s.

    there are two ways either ask your clients for reviews and the other way is add paid reviews ,
    you should post content on your gmb listing every week.

    Many people who tried said it doesn’t affect rankings and that makes sense. As suggested is probably better embedding maps on multiple sites and then blast them

    1. Consider Putting Your Main Keywords in the GMB Business Name
    2. Make Sure Your Categories Are Correct and Max Them Out
    3. Build Niche and Local Related Citations
    4. Fix Your On-Page
    5. Get Social Signals
    6. Get More Reviews!
    7. Get a Press Release Written to Improve Your Google Maps Ranking
    8. Guest Post Outreach
    9. Google Sites/Domain Authority Stack
    10. Be Patient When Trying to Rank Higher on Google Maps and Organic Search.

    I keep posting about my business twice in a week,
    Add GEO tags in photos there are many tools on Google to do it.
    I keep tracking my ranking using Local falcon to make sure I am not doing something wrong.
    Also keep working on website SEO that supports GMB listing alot.
