This is a screenshot from January 1, 2023. I searched ‘real estate photography oak brook’ My company, Virtual Vista came up as the #1 result in the organic and local listings (FREE) for those terms. The company at the very top of the page is a paid sponsorship, they pay to show up.
If your business is not showing up on the first page of google you are losing out on business for the simple reason that the person searching never see’s your website. Most people do not go further that the first page, not even further than the top 1/2 of the first page!
If you want to change that and get found by more people searching organically (not-paid) the first thing that you need to do is get your Google Business Profile set up properly.
