Upload Photos to your Google Plus Business Page:

Upload the images which describe your business at its best. These photos will always be shown at the top of your page so make sure to upload relevant images which will describe your business. It can be anything logo, business / brand name, Office, employees, location and don’t forget to upload the images of awards your business has won. So depending on the business you are doing I will recommend you to upload minimum 5 images to your page.

Use the Suitable Keywords:

Start with the introduction of your page. Try to use the words which will describe your business best. Make sure to use search engine optimised keywords. Try to hyperlink few Keywords to your website.

Actual Business Hours:

Make sure you use the actual business hours in the Hours block. The hours should be consistent with yours business. For any update on this do the changes in the pages immediately.

Name your Website:

The name of the website can be anything like blog, actual website, and social page. Now depending upon the business you are doing make sure the link should contain enough information of your business or brand.

Add relevant profiles and pages:

On the sidebar of this page, you can add “Recommended Links.” This is where you will want to add your business blog, social profiles, and local listings and review sites you want to promote. To optimize each of these, use the following format: “Business Name + Site Name” For example, to link to your business Facebook Page, in the Label section, write “Business Name Twitter,” and then in the next box, list your Page’s unique URL.

So now you are ready to go with your Google+ page.
