Google’s job in a search is to deliver results that successfully meet the needs or expectations of a searcher. That means Google must evaluate your business for
relevance – that there is a good match between your business and the term or phrase used by the searcher
accuracy – how likely it is you are who you say you are (fraud prevention), that you can be contacted at the information provided, and that you offer what you say you offer
quality of your service – some objective measure of customer satisfaction
The Google My Business (GMB) page
To help Google measure these priorities, they have provided you with the ability to complete a Google My Business (GMB) page. You may be most familiar with this page from your own searches. On a results page, you will notice a panel on the right that usually features a business with
photos of its staff
photos of its office (if there is one)
links to the website
a phone number to call
hours of operation
Google reviews and star ratings
regular blog postings that flesh out your understanding of the business, its personality, and its credibility
More and more consumers are turning to Google to find you and to evaluate you online, relative to your competition.
Let us help you with these search-oriented services:
Getting those star ratings and positive comments about your business is commercial gold. A testimonials page on your website is helpful, but how do viewers know you didn’t just make them up? By displaying your Google reviews on your company website, you provide “social proof” that others have been satisfied with your services.
You receive the following:
An initial tune-up on your GMB page. If your GMB page is not optimized, Google doesn’t “see you” as readily as they would if it is completely and accurately filled out. We audit your page, add the top priority elements, and remove the most common sources of inaccuracy (and demerits!). You need a GMB page to gather Google reviews.
Advice for collecting Google reviews. Google has protections in place to ensure that reviews are genuine and not coerced or bought. As a result, there are very particular do’s and don’ts for getting reviews. Let us help you avoid common pitfalls that could cause Google to misinterpret your reviews and penalize your listing.
A spreadsheet and templates. We provide you with the tools you need to quickly and easily set up a system for requesting reviews.
Suggestions for handling negative reviews. Bad reviews do happen. But strategic responses and savvy review collection procedures can help you minimize public complaints and actually improve your services and customer satisfaction overall. We provide you with guidance and a selection of suggested text for your responses.
Displaying positive reviews on your website. Google insists on posting all reviews and communication on your GMB page. On your own website, however, you can leverage the benefits of social proof by displaying only your four- and five-star reviews on strategic pages so prospective clients can get immediate feedback from satisfied customers.
Part of maintaining a positive viewer experience is making sure that what the searcher sees is accurate and up to date. Although you can simply complete your GMB page and call it done, Google gives you many more points—and you increase the chances of having your GMB page appear in the upper right of even a non-branded search result—if you add to your GMB regularly.
But who has time? For clients using our WordPress template for their company website, the family caregiver content or the Aging Well content for boomers can be set to display on your GMB page as well.
automatic—handsfree—GMB posting of educational content, including text and graphics. Once a week for family caregiver articles. Once a month for Aging Well articles. No fuss, no muss on your part.
A row of graphics and excerpts on your GMB to add credibility and visual attractiveness to your listing.
Google “points” for regularly updating your GMB.
A GMB tune-up. Even if you think your GMB page is complete, our experience tells us that key elements are likely to be missing or entered incorrectly. There may even be duplicate GMBs from an earlier time in your business. Since accuracy is what Google is all about, we audit your page and your Web presence, making sure the top-priority elements are in alignment with Google policies and removing the most common sources of inaccuracy (and demerits!).
I wanted to leave a review for Elder Pages/Serious Illness/Tasha B and her team.... we have worked with this group for over 10 years to build brand awareness and consistency across our markets. Working for a non-profit we are sometimes challenged with a mighty caseload and a small team, but having Elder Pages by our side we have been able to maximize our efforts, complete projects that may have seemed impossible to conquer without their teamwork and support and find ways to further support our teams who support so many patients and families challenged by a serious illness. Elder Pages commitment to innovation is extraordinary and I have truly valued their willingness to come to us with new ideas, new products and new resources to best support our patients and families. If I could give the work they do to support non-profit hospice organizations ten stars, I would!

Good content marketing is critical to any company's success. I have been an admirer of the content Tasha creates for a number of years. Tasha has established herself as the expert in content marketing for elder care professionals.
Meeting Tasha at an Aging Life Care Association annual conference several years ago was instrumental to bringing my business into the modern age of social media! Tasha truly understands the challenges care managers face and the work that we do. Her expertise in web design helped me develop a fantastic web site that truly reflects my mission and services. The E-Library Tasha developed as a research scientist has helped me establish credibility and is an easy-to- use tool for educational presentations. Consistent, reliable postings to my social media accounts have saved me time, effort and allows me the opportunity to stick to what I do best, helping elders and care giving families! Best of all, Tasha and her team are so very patient and kind and always make the time to answer my questions in a manner that I can sincerely understand!
