Google wants to be the information centre for the world. It wants to provide as much assistance as possible to users searching the internet.
This desire to inform has resulted in Google creating 3 main areas of influence you need to be aware of.
Google’s 3 main areas of influence over a search request are:-
- Website listings
- Local Business Database
These show up on Search Engine Result Pages (SERP’s) as:-
- Organic website lists (Top 10 Listings)
- Local Pack – GMB, Google’s local business database & Google Maps
- Google Ads at the Top of the page
Each of these areas of influence are held in different places. Each needs its own set of skills to manage, optimize and control.
The Places to be Found
Controlling Website Listings
68% of online experiences begin with a search engine.
It’s all about optimizing your website. Giving as much help to Google as possible to understand the content on your website. So they can present your business in the search results to users.
Google scans the internet looking for web pages. It follows links on pages to other pages. It tries to understand, that this page is about a subject and links to another page about the same subject and they are related.
This process is called crawling, and the output from this is put into Indexes. Indexing speeds up the listing process of a search, because related webpages are grouped together.
These indexes relate to Keywords & Phrases used by users to requests information.
It Is Important to Optimize your webpages to explain what you do. So Google can place you into the right list, and place you in front of a user’s search requests.
Building the Local Business Database
64% of consumers use Google My Business to find contact details.
Over time Google has not always found the best information from websites, and is not able to report back to users about a given subject or entities. So it set out to create a business database were it could store and report back to users, about Local businesses.

If Google can’t find the information, it will build its own.
