Be found in the local search results.
Google My Business is a platform that pools Google's many services into one spot, so you can effectively manage your business listing on Google.
With Google My Business, you can manage:
Increase your visibility within local search results in both Google Search and Google Maps – across all device types.
Give potential customers fast & accurate contact information about your business – address, phone number, opening hours etc. Importantly, claiming your listing will stop unauthorised changes.
Engage with prospects and customers via posts, responding to reviews & Hangouts on your Google+ page. Your customers can show their appreciation with ratings and reviews, use the +1 button to endorse your content, and re-share your Google+ posts across the web.
Google now requires a verified My Business page to be linked to your AdWords account if you want your address to display with your ads. This increases the size of your ad and takes valuable search page real estate from your competitors.
Give customers the right info at the right time, whether that be driving directions to your business in Maps, hours of operations in Search or a phone number they can click to call you on mobile phones.
Customer ratings and reviews help you stay on top of valuable feedback. You need a Google My Business account to be able to respond to reviews.
