Today, Google Ads accounts for about 40% of the company’s website traffic, Google wrote in its annual report.

Having established a successful digital strategy, Suburban Bolt and Supply plans to reinstate e-commerce sales in the near future,” Google added.

“We also use Google My Business which allows us to see every phone call, every search, and even our busy times like foot traffic when they’re coming in at each of our locations,” Gordon said. “We’ve been able to generate a number of new customers, and we’ve been able to do that in ways we’ve never been able to before.
