13 Oct What is Google My Business?
You may have noticed on our site, we refer to Google Plus also as Google my Business. Or you may have seen these changes on Google. As of June 2014 the new Google my Business was meant to simplify local marketing for small local businesses. In the words of Google, “Be there when customers look for you online.” Let us explain the difference between the two and exactly what Google My Business is and what it can do for your small business.
Google My Business is an integrated app, launched to ease the confusion of managing local listings and Google plus pages for small businesses. The new Google My Business is mean to make it “easier than ever to update business information across Google Search, Maps, and Google+”. Google has essentially streamlined the process for small business, allowing them to manage business data, reviews, and interactions through one platform.
If your business was previously locally listed, or had a Google+ page, then you will automatically be “upgraded” to the new Google My Business page. For more information about Google My Business, check out the Google My Business FAQ. If you’re just getting started
