The information we have completed in Google My Business
Although, according to a Moz article, some of the sections are not important and have no impact on the ranking, we decided to follow Google’s advice:
“Local results favor the most relevant results for each search. Businesses with complete and accurate information are easier to match with the right searches.”
“To maximize how often users find your business in local search results, ensure that your business information in Google My Business is accurate, complete, and engaging.”(From a Google support answer).

Google My Business vs Google Maps
According to a post on biziq.com Google Maps and Google My Business work together.
“Ultimately, the primary difference between the two is that Google Maps will show your business’ location and provide directions on how to get there. Whereas Google My Business will provide all the information, people need to do business with you.”
Although in most cases the positions coincide, we have noticed that Google Maps ranking is sometimes lower than Google My Business.
The position for “SEO Agency Galway” is the same: #9
The positions for “SEO Audits Galway” are different: #2 and #3

Cool, huh? What about revealing the truth?

Hmm, does it make any sense to rank if there is no search volume?
There is still some hope
After showing you this, let me ask you a question.
Do you always put the name of the city when looking for something around you?
I, for example, don’t type Galway most of the time!
Here is what happened when I searched for my top keywords (without the addition of Galway) from my location, which is Galway.
Not bad at all!
|Keywords||Search Volume||Difficulty Score||Google My Business|
|off page seo||0||74|
|on page seo||0||76|
Three of my primary keywords take the top positions and naturally there is also a difference in the search volumes.
The importance of correct spelling
At the end and not directly related to the topic, I would like to show you the importance of spelling for Google SERPs.
