    6 days ago I finished building 230 map embeds on web 2.0's, and so far, and I know that it's early days, but I've seen no effect whatsoever.

    Is their a service here on BHW that offers this? I can't seem to have find any. Or any good reads on going about this?

    Yeah, thats what I did. And did some other things too to rank it. But as it was a service, so I can't explain much about it.

    Yes I have done this a lot. I use the Shortened URL on the Maps section. - maps.google.com

    We do this for all of our local sites and it works well.

    What exactly do you do? I'm a bit new to this and can't seem to find anyone who offers this service or a good explanation.

    Building backlinks to the GMB and embedded maps.

    I understand how to do backlinks to website pages, but unsure with GMB

    Go to maps

    enter the business name

    when the business GMB listing appears on the left hand side, click the three lines next to the business name to open the menu.

    Click share or embed map

    The link to share will be there

    You then use that link to build backlinks like a normal link on your website

    But instead of building links to your website you build them to the GMB listing on Google maps

    Ah okay I see this.

    So, from my understanding, I just backlink to that URL now? also, should this link be anywhere on my site?

    Second, should I take that embed iframe link and be doing anything with it? like posting on my contact page of website?

    Thanks for your help

    Honestly I have no idea.

    I don't even know if it works.

    I'm just experimenting right now.

    Would it be a bad idea to link my shortened map url from my website store footer? The website url has authority and I would use an anchor with my main key in the footer zone of my website.

    6 days is nothing, you definitely have to give it longer than that. It usually takes a couple months for me.

    Are you guys linking 2.0's to your GMB listing url first, or are you blasting them directly with low quality links? From what I've heard google is so favorable towards their own properties that you can blast virtually anything at their properties (GMB, google plus pages, youtube, etc) and they'll rank well after a while.

    I do both Tier 1 and Tier 2. Though I do like the strategy of web 2.0 links to the GMB and then blasting it with T2 links.

    the proper way is getting the business map address well advertised in google for that niche.

    i don't know what way you lot doing it but that the proper way.

    you can also push the niche up in the maps algo with pbn and web 2.0

    that the two methods i have read that get good traffic .

    Thanks, if you're not using 2.0's than what do you mean by tier 1, what are you using?
