■ Background As the spread of smartphones advances, the number of map users on smartphones is also increasing, and it is said that the usage rate while traveling is as high as 60% or more (* 1). In addition, the usage rate of “Google Map” is the highest among map applications, with about 77% (※ 2). With the increase in the use of maps on smartphones, there are increasing cases where the user refers to store information displayed on search results and maps when searching for a target store etc. “Google My Business” is a service that can register and manage the basic information of this company / store, and when registered, business information can be posted free of charge on various Google services such as Google search and Google map. In addition, the content posted on Google My Business is the highest influential factor (* 4) to be displayed at the top of the search results screen (local SEO (* 3)). The use of Ness is becoming very important. However, despite the fact that these two services provided by Google are an indispensable means of attracting customers for the operation of companies and stores throughout Japan, there are still few companies and stores that can actually be used. . Against this background, SOT is providing “Likule GMB,” a store attraction support service that allows customers to search for store information on Google maps and search results screens, in order to promote the use of Google My Business by small and medium-sized enterprises in Japan.
