Performing Google searches can give you a lot of information, including facts about yourself and your business.

If your name is connected to your brand, you want to be sure it appears and stays at the top of search results.

Your ranking on Google will give you control of how others see you online. This ranking (along with online images, review sites, and social media) will determine the image others have of you and your business. The following is a breakdown of how others see you online through searches and from other sources.

Reviews influence decisions

Your current and potential customers can see Google review results as well as other review sources for your brand. Consumers follow online reviews more than 75% of the time, along with personal recommendations.

The nature of reviews appearing online for your brand will determine the number of purchases you receive. Studies show more than 80% of consumers base their purchases on reviews found online. If you need more reviews, it can help to politely ask customers to leave good reviews if they were happy with their experience.

People find you on Google and other search engines

Reports show that of those who perform a Google search for a name or brand, just a little more than 30% of them choose the first item on results. Also, more than 60% of internet users perform a search and believe the results. This is why your site’s ranking plays such an important role in your marketing and overall online image. If you do not rank well, people will not be able to find you.

Your social media represents your company

If harassment is going to occur online, the majority of it will be done through social media sites. Remember that whatever you post online will stay out there.
