How can I rank in Google Map searches for surrounding cities?

Here are a few recommendations on how to get your service area business to show up in multiple cities on Google Maps.

Rankings are based heavily on proximity so getting your listing to display in other cities is extremely difficult.

Completely optimizing the GMB is the first step. However since there are a finite amount of fields in the GMB dashboard, the next step would be to increase the engagement on the Google listing. This is done by getting more reviews, using the GMB post feature, and frequently uploading images to the listing.

Since a large amount of the ranking strength for a Google My Business listing comes from the associated website, optimizing the website using regular SEO best practices will be necessary as well.
