Google has a new service called Google Tags and it places an eye-catching yellow tag next to your listing on Google Search and Google Maps. Use the tag to highlight coupons, customer reviews, or other helpful information that can help searchers choose you. It’s one way to make your listing stand out from the competition. Plus, it’s affordable and can be set up fairly quickly. If we peaked your interest keep on reading.
The Google Tag…
Google claims the tag increases traffic to your Google Places page while making your company easier to find. In the below example, a yellow tag appears next to a hotel listing.

Coupons, video, and more…
In addition to tagging websites – coupons, video, menus, reservations, photos and even custom messages can be added. The first 30 days are free and it’s $25 per month thereafter. A credit card is required to receive the 30-day trial.
Before ordering Google Tags…
Before ordering a Google Tag we recommend making sure your Places pages is up-to-date. Plus, if there are poor reviews it might not be a good time to use Google Tags. When ordering one of our local listings packages we will assist with improving reviews and local listings.
It’s too early to tell if Google Tags will draw customers to your company – but for $25 and a 30-day free trial it’s worth a try. We recommend running a Google Tags campaign for at least six month to see how it performs. Give us a call when you’re ready to start.
