Read time: 4 mins

In this week’s issue, I want to talk about how Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE) will impact local search as a Local Small Business Consultant and/or Digital Marketing Agency Owner…

We’ll explore how Google’s new Search Generative Experience is reshaping the landscape for local small businesses and the impact on Google Business Profiles (GBP)…

This innovation promises not just visibility but a significant boost in sales for those who adapt quickly.

With that being said…

Let’s dive in!


What Is Google’s Search Generative Experience?

Google’s SGE is an advanced A.I.-driven feature integrated into search results…

It enhances user interaction by generating comprehensive, conversational responses to queries, combining the power of traditional search with conversational A.I….

This means more detailed answers, personalized suggestions, and a richer user experience.


Why Google’s SGE Matters for Local Small Businesses

Here’s why this matters…

Google’s SGE isn’t just about delivering information—it’s about engagement…

When users search for local services, SGE provides detailed, conversational responses that can include direct mentions of local small businesses, their services, and even personalized recommendations…

This can lead to higher engagement rates and, ultimately, more sales.


Impact on Google Business Profiles

Your client’s Google Business Profile is a digital storefront…

With SGE, the visibility and content of your client’s GBP become even more critical…

Here’s how SGE impacts GBPs:

  • Enhanced Visibility

SGE can pull detailed information from your client’s GBP, such as services, operating hours, and customer reviews, and present them in a conversational format…

This means potential customers can get a comprehensive overview of your client’s business directly from the search results.

  • Increased Engagement

The A.I.-driven responses can include personalized recommendations based on user behavior and preferences…

Making it more likely that your client’s business will be recommended to potential customers.

  • Optimized Content

Ensuring your client’s GBP is fully optimized with accurate and comprehensive information becomes crucial…

This includes high-quality images, detailed service descriptions, and up-to-date contact information.


How to Leverage Google’s SGE for More Sales

To capitalize on Google’s SGE for your client’s local small business, follow these strategies:

1. Optimize Your Google Business Profile

  • Complete All Sections: Ensure every section of your GBP is filled out comprehensively. This includes business hours, services offered, and detailed descriptions.
  • Add High-Quality Images: Visual content is crucial. High-quality images of your storefront, products, and services can significantly enhance your profile.
  • Encourage Reviews: Positive reviews can boost your profile’s visibility and credibility. Encourage satisfied customers to leave reviews and respond to them promptly.

2. Focus on Local SEO

  • Relevant Keywords: Use local keywords in your business description and posts. This helps in appearing in more localized search results.
  • Consistent NAP: Ensure your business name, address, and phone number (NAP) are consistent across all online platforms.

3. Utilize Google Posts

  • Regular Updates: Use Google Posts to share updates, promotions, and events. This keeps your profile active and engaging.
  • Engaging Content: Post content that encourages interaction, such as special offers, behind-the-scenes looks, and customer testimonials.


Real-World Example: A Local Bakery

Consider a local bakery that optimizes its GBP with detailed descriptions of its offerings, high-quality photos of its pastries, and regular posts about daily specials…

With Google’s SGE, a user searching for “best bakery near me” might get a conversational response highlighting this bakery’s popular items, customer reviews, and even a personalized suggestion based on the user’s past searches for gluten-free options…

This rich, engaging response can significantly increase the likelihood of the user visiting the bakery.



Google’s Search Generative Experience is a game-changer for local small businesses…

By optimizing your client’s Google Business Profile and focusing on local SEO…

You can harness this powerful tool to increase your client’s visibility, engage potential customers, and drive more sales.
