To do this you must connect your business address to Google through a Google My Business listing.
Google My Business content is now one of the largest ranking factors Google refers to when deciding what business to show in organic local search results.
To ensure you are being shown alongside your competitors in local map searches on Google, the first thing you must do is ensure that you have a verified, accurate, and consistently updated business listing on Google.

Connecting your Shoptoit account to your Google Business account will allow you to:

Our Auto Posting feature ensures you’re always telling Google they can trust you.
Google has made one thing clear – businesses who actively update and maintain their Google My Business listings will be rewarded. Consistently updating a GMB listing helps you rise to the top, and get more new customers.
That’s where our Auto Posting feature comes in.
Posting on Google My Business is one of the top things you can do to tell Google your business is real and trustworthy. The down-side is, each post you publish to Google My Business expires after 7 days – meaning you must remember to login every week to re-post, or add new content.
Our auto-posting feature lets you post directly to your GMB listing – and lets you schedule to re-post every 7 days. Meaning you simply need to add your post once, and it will be re-posted to Google every week automatically.
