How Do I Show Up in Google Maps?
Google My Business, local map listings, or google map pack is the list of businesses you find with a map location or service area listed next to it whenever you conduct a search
This is very important because it is another way people can find you and it is apart from your website (save for the link you can add directly to your website on it!)
The pack itself normally shows above organic rank listings, so it is the first thing people will see and if you manage to secure a top 3 spot your chances of getting traffic increases
