Listing forTop Ranking Locally
Having a GMB Listing allows local people to find your business on Google Search and Maps. It’s something like a “one stop shop” for your business information. Users love it because it’s at the top of the page, it offers them local relevance to their search, and it displays a map of the area in the middle of the search results page. Why only 3 businesses in the three pack? Simply put, The best optimised and most relevant businesses for your search are listed in the 3 pack.
You can click "more results" and you’ll see all the Google My Business profiles for that search result, but it’s those that are most relevant and are the best optimised that show in the top 3 on page 1 of the search results. You may somtimes see the top 3 plus an ad, but being in the top 3 is where your business needs to be.
