What? You haven’t got your free Google+ listing yet?
I’m still amazed at how many of the people we deal with haven’t registered their Google+ business account.
“Oh god, not another thing I have to register,” I hear you cry.

A Google business account is essential if you are a business seeking local clients. In many cases you will appear at the top of the search ranks in the geographical section. What this means in practice is a top rank on Google without having to do lots of painful SEO work which can take months. And I’ll repeat, it’s FREE!
