Optimize your website
To attract and engage customers with your site, consider these best practices.
- Your cover photo shows up when customers find your business on Google. Make sure you select a quality photo that is relevant to your business.
- The cover photo displays with your headline and text on top of the image, so we recommend that you choose an image with no text. Interior pictures of your business or pictures of your products often work well.
- Photos should be in-focus and well-lit.
- Use other photos to show what your business offers like your products, services, photos of your team, or location. For example, if your business is a restaurant, you may want to show photos of different kinds of food you prepare and your restaurant interior.
- You can display a maximum of 9 photos on your site.
- Use the text editor to highlight your products, services, and unique value to customers.
- Your "Headline" should emphasize your main selling point and invite readers to learn more about your business.
- Use the "Description" and "Summary header" to briefly expand on your unique selling point.
- Use the "Summary body" to offer relevant information.
- For example:
- If your business is a restaurant: You may want to list a few menu items.
- If you offer a repair or professional service: You may want to explain what kind of jobs you perform and emphasize qualities like dependability, response times, experience, or value.
- You can also use this section to link to other pages like:
- An online ordering or reservation system
- Your Facebook page
- Other pages where customers can learn more about your business
- For example:
To enter or change basic business information, in the side navigation menu, on the left, click Info.
