ο Google your business name in all its keyword forms. See what comes up and what may need addressed.
ο Check your Google listing – what’s missing? Are the hours current? Are the links accurate? Be sure it’s updated.
ο Search your business across Bing, Yahoo, Ask.com and Yelp as well. Update those as needed.
ο Set up a Google Alert for your name, your business name, and other critical possible search terms. That way you can see what others post about you and your business to take action to minimize any damage – and to thank them accordingly.
