This means when someone searches for your company or location on Google your unbiased.co.uk profile should be displayed in the natural search results. One of the ways Google chooses to list webpages is by looking at the amount of content, therefore having a fully complete profile on unbiased.co.uk should help you to appear in a prominent position. So why not update your profile today?
Our 'Write a will week' campaign in partnership with Octopus Investments continues to raise consumers' awareness of the importance of having a will, with our helpful will writing guide featured in This is Money last week.
The guide helps consumers by highlighting what they need to do to put a will in place, as well as the potential risks they face by not writing one. With our joint research showing 58% of UK adults do not have a will, it is important to educate people on the issue - do you talk to your clients about will writing? How do you encourage them to write one? Share your tips in our LinkedIn discussion.
