Google Map, Business and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Google Map, Business and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Google Map, Business and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Google maps, Google Business and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) are vital tools for businesses to maximize their potential customer base. If you think about your own internet usage, imagine how often you find yourself in front of search results, whether on Google, Yahoo, or another platform. By combining the proper words that reflects what your company offer, we can put you in the most visible position on any search results page utilizing Google Maps.

 

How It Works

Google Maps is pretty straightforward, and maybe you’re already familiar with the basics, but let me give you an easy to digest example of what we do.

Your company sells computer and mobile phones for example, and you have countless competitors in this field. If we optimize on the words 'Computer dealers in Nigeria' your company could pop up in the top position of the search results, or perhaps a few positions from the top but still highly visible. The point is, people could find your company without even initially searching for your exact company name.

Now, let’s imagine how much it will cost, if you actually had to 'pay to appear!' that could run into millions. Sure, you will be charged a fee for each keyword we optimize, but when you compare that one-time figure to the potential cost of your adverts, it’s easy to see the return on investment.

Now that you can see the value of Google maps and Google Business here’s how we’ll build your successful campaign.

We will analyze your business and suggested some keywords to optimize; you can add more and point us to the right direction if the keywords suggested do not fully represent your business.

Campaign Building and Management

We will start by analyzing your business and researching your industry. From this we will find the perfect keywords and organize them in strong campaigns and groups, then set up your business. The main benefit of a well-researched Google Map is that, believe it or not, the more relevant and intelligent you make it, the more Google will show you to potential customers, and as such, you’ve won big time. This is why we believe that our Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Google Maps creation is not only valuable, but essential.

One of the keys, if you will, to keywords is maintaining a steady flow of search terms and adapting to patterns. Here’s an example of how we will manage your PPC campaign:

Staying current: Why pay for something that doesn’t work for your company? We know the answer, and this is why we constantly evaluate the effectiveness of your keywords to maximize results.

Covering all the bases: Not all keywords are created equal, so in some cases the most popular terms and words will only get you so far. We will develop longer keyword terms to keep you competitive.

Ongoing process: Once you start a Map creation, it should be ever-evolving and adapting to changes in the search environment. We will make sure to advice you on how to stay on top of search result patterns. Clearing clutter: If something isn’t working, it goes in the trash bin and we analyze why the keywords did not work out, giving you an idea of what is and is not effective.

Target Channels

Google Maps and Business
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Where You Will Appear on both Google Maps and Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

See an example below;

If you type “Acer stores in Lagos” or “lenovo laptops dealers” Google will display one of our clients’ Dreamworks Integrated Ltd on the right side of the page if you are using laptop, but if you using phone it will display on top the page.

We can get you business or products on the first page of Google search like we did for the client below and many others.

lenovo laptop dealers in lagos Google Search

By the side in search like we did for a client

If you also type " Online Advertising Agencies in Ngeria" you will see Alternative advert Ltd on both the map and search result

FG PLANS 40% BUDGET ON INFRASTRUCTURE

FG PLANS 40% BUDGET ON INFRASTRUCTURE

FG PLANS 40% BUDGET ON INFRASTRUCTURE

PUAH OMOKHUALE
The federal government of Nigeria, (FG) has been urged to include a 40 per cent allocation in the 2018 budget as capital projects so as to boost development in the critical sectors of the economy.

This statement was included in the report presented by The Lead Director, CSJ, Mr. Eze Onyekpere, in Abuja on Monday.
He also called on the FG to allocate a 15 per cent of the annual budget to the health sector in order to reduce the high rate of medical tourism in Nigeria.

This was stated by the Centre for Social Justice and the United States Agency for International Development, in a report on the Health Sector Medium-Term Strategies for the 2018-2020 fiscal periods.

According to Mr. Onyekpere, there is a need to amend the National Health Insurance Scheme Act to make health insurance compulsory and universal, so as to help the government generate more funds in the health sector.

He added that while the improvement in the macro economic situation in Nigeria seems to be reducing, there is a need to increase the health’s investment to avoid worsening the national health and economic indices.

He also said in his voice “the current Nigeria’s health indices should be pillars of a robust investment plan in the MTSS, anchored on the macroeconomic standard f the country.

“The 15 percent of the total annual budget that should be allocated to the health sector should be in alliance with the Abuja Declaration of 2001. If the 15percent deal does not seem so possible, we could start with a minimum of 7.5 per cent allocation in 2018 and gradually increase by 1.5 percent until the 15 percent is attained in 2023.

“The bulk of the new resources should be allocated to the capital expenditure, so as to enhance access of equipment and health infrastructures. The plan is that nothing less than 40 percent of the allocation should go to capital expenditure in 2018 and highly increasing in subsequent years.

“Just as stipulated in the National Health Act, 2014; Not less than one percent of the consolidated revenue fund should be allocated to the Basic Care Provision Fund in the 2018 budget and beyond.   

“in generating more funding for the health sector, the National Health Insurance Scheme Act ought to be adjusted to make health insurance universally compulsory and also consider new sources for health insurance funding that will include two percent surcharge on all imports, a special tax on tobacco , alcohol and smaller tariffs on telecommunications services to be borne by the consumer”.

Mr. Onyekpere called on the government to help consider establishing a health bank to provide single-digit long term loans, in order to develop health institutions, infrastructure, research and human resources for the health sector.
He added, saying that while steps are been taken to establish the health bank, the government have to consider special ways of funding the health which should be established through administrative actions.

FG REQUESTS 3% IGST FOR GOLD IMPORTATION

FG REQUESTS 3% IGST FOR GOLD IMPORTATION

FG REQUESTS 3% IGST FOR GOLD IMPORTATION

PUAH OMOKHUALE
The Federal government of Nigeria has said that the banks that imports gold and precious metals will start paying a 3 percentage fee to Goods and Services Tax (GST) which can be claimed as input tax credit.
In a bid to clarify issues on GST on gems and jewelry through Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) said banks did not pay any VAT on import of precious metals previously. They only settled customs duty.

It has also been said that the Import of gold attracts a 10 per cent basic customs duty, following the fact that a 12.5 per cent countervailing duty (CVD) was levied prior to GST.
However, in the GST, "3 per cent Integrated-GST is payable on all imports of precious metals in addition to the basic customs duty, as the IGST paid can be taken as input tax credit by the banks."
The CBEC also said that banks would be liable to pay IGST on such import duties and not any overseas supplier in which ownership is vested during movement of gold or silver.

 Following the statement of the FAQ, "Ownership is not the material for determining if an import has taken place or not. Banks, as registered entities, would be liable to pay IGST on such imports but not the overseas entities, because they are not affecting the import," she said.
The CBEC also added her statement on the levy of GST where the total value of a gold ornament is Rs 30,000, including Rs 2,000 as making charge. In her words, "GST is payable at the rate of 3 per cent of the total transaction value of jewellery, whether the making charge is shown separately or not".
It was also said that since GST subsumed CVD, hence the GST rate on gold at 3 per cent ought to be paid at the time of imports in the form of IGST with effect from July 1.
