Have you looked at your SocialClimb Scorecard recently? If you haven’t, you should. The scorecard is a quick-reference measure of how well your GMB listing is optimized that covers the basics of what should be included.
The most important factor in improving your local search ranking is your GMB listing, according to a 2020 survey of SEO experts. And showing up in local search is essential if you want to attract new patients. That means it’s worth your time to get as many of those boxes checked as possible.
