MMOC on Google Local Business
An appeal from your
One of my projects has been to make sure that when people Google for a church in our area, MMOC is near the top of their search results.
One of the ways that MMOC is on the Web is called Google Local Business. Think of it as an online, multimedia "yellow pages" listing. It is a free service. Yet it is an important form of evangelism because a lot of young people find their way to MMOC on the web, and this is one of their paths.
There is one step we could take that might help to make MMOC's listing even more prominent. (You might have to take off your Catholic parishioner expectations for a moment.) In Google Local Business, businesses with more customer reviews rank higher than those with fewer reviews. I know it's odd to think of "reviewing" your parish. But if we could get some loyals to write brief entries about life at MMOC, that might help with this particular evangelism.
You can help, and it will take only a few minutes. Begin by taking a moment to consider what aspects of our parish life are best or most valuable to you. Then follow these steps:
Google on "catholic church la crosse wi". Look for MMOC and click "Google Reviews". Then click "Write a Review."
