Think your talking about Google AdWords Express.

 

Basically you pay for how any clicks you get on your link and can from like £1 up to £10 I think after having a quick look into it. But basically the more clicks you get the more you pay.

Hi Andy,

 

The ones in the yellow box are Google AdWords as CW90 pointed out and they do cost you. However, I think the ones you are referring to are probably the local search results? After a few normal results you then get a list of about 10 results that only take up the left half of the page and on the right of the page is a map ... is that the ones you mean?

 

They used to be called Google Place Pages, but then when Google launched it's own social network to compete with Facebook it incorporated Place Pages and so now each Google Place has a Google Plus Page to go with it. A lot of these have already been set up automatically based on Google's existing knowledge of local businesses, but the information on there is just what Google finds automatically and is not always accurate. If you find that your business is already listed, you can just "claim" it and then correct any wrong information and keep it updated. If you're not on there already, you can sign up for a free page.

 

The benefit of these is that they appear high in "Local Search" results ... which is obviously good for a window cleaner. Most people won't just be searching "window cleaner" they will search for something like "window cleaner Wrexham" ... and if your business has a Place page and appears on the map near Wrexham, Google knows to put you up on the "Local Search" then.

 

To get more info and to find out how to sign up, check out this page: www.google.com/business/placesforbusiness/index.html

 

(Tried editing link to make it clickable but doesn't seem to be working. And the text was getting shortened so it just had a "..." in the middle. Anyway, think I've sorted it so it displays properly now even if it's not clickable so can copy and paste it into the address bar. I hope!)

If you've already been waiting a few weeks, remember that all you are seeing on the main Search Results page is the TOP TEN map search results inserted in with all the rest of the web results.

 

After doing a search, at the top of the page, where it says "Web | Images | Maps | Shopping | More | Search Tools" click the "Maps" link. Now at the bottom of the page you'll get a < 1 2 3 4 5 > that let's you view other local search results that are lower down the list. You may find that you are already appearing in the list somewhere, just not high enough to show up on the first page.

 

You can do SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) on your Google Page like you do on a website to make it perform better. So login and keep it updated, add as much information as you can and make sure you include key words and phrases in your descriptions and titles. That will help you appear higher and sooner.
