You have posted some information on the internet in various places, stating that you are a business with "apartments" in the location "Kissamos". These points can be, the content of your website, the Maps on Google, the Google My Business and other platforms. ideally, these are all interconnected.
Let's say that someone searches for the term "kissamo apartments" or "apartments in kissamos". It is very likely your own page appears in the first results (this always depends on the competition).
