Keywords are terms that you want to monitor on search engines.
These terms should be very closely related to your business. The ones you are interested in monitoring are terms that your customers would search for to find your business or a business like yours online.
For example, if you are a Restaurant in New York the search terms you would be interested would include:
- restaurants new york
- restaurant new york
- new york restaurant
- restaurant near me
- 5 star restaurants near me
- best restaurants new york
And they may get specific like:
- italian restaurants new york
You should determine all of the keywords that your customers would use to find a business like yours and try to rank as high as possible for those keywords.
When your business is first created myPresences will automatically create some default keywords based on your business, where you are located and your business type.
- Your business name Your location
- Your phone number
- Your website url
- Your business type Your location
- Your business type near me
