Google My Business
About Google My Business
Google My Business (GMB) is an easy to use platform offered by Google to enhance your online presence across Google’s search and maps network. It is a almost an online directory/social media platform for businesses enhanced to make Google search more dynamic for users. GMB is great for local SEO.
What information can I manage with GMB?
Once your business is verified by Google, you can provide information such as services and products offered, opening hours, address, phone number, area covered, about your business and photos. You can also provide posts, offers and updates – for example, during the Covid-19 pandemic businesses are about to offer updates such as ‘online appointments only’ or ‘open as usual’ etc.
Google has also integrated it’s own reviews platform in Google My Business – this allows users to leave reviews and allows you to respond on the platform also. Reviews are great for SEO and may also help persuade other potential customers looking for your services.
What if I have more than one location?
GMB allows you to create a location group – allowing you to have all your locations linked together but a separate entry for each.
