    Hello Stackers!

    My question is simple.

    What should I do If I want a client site top 3 of serps and have it ALSO show in google business recommendation list.

    Do I build links to google my business page & the website OR just website OR just google my business page. This client site is already top 3 for most kws in google serps. I am a bit confused as I have never done any local work.

    Please let me know!

    Many thanks

    Hey mate, I personally don't build links specially to GMB pages, except the ones that come from various business directories (you know those sites that allow you to add your brand's social properties and your GMB page in the company profile).

    In the past I remember reading few case studies on link building to the GMB page, and as far as I remember these guys concluded that there were no any noticeable benefits.

    The local algorithm is responsible for the local pack and G maps rankings. You can search around the web, there are some really nice guides for local SEO.

    For a start, you can start building citations.
