What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is a platform which connects search users to your company via search results, Google Maps and Google Plus listings. Formerly known as Google Plus Places, the new Google My Business serves a similar purpose of interacting with customers, but comes with improved features for both parties involved (businesses and search users). Google My Business allows an easier and more convenient process to update business information across all of Google properties (such as Google Plus, maps and search).
Whilst this platform is intended to act as a complementary feature to existing business websites, local businesses without a website can still utilise Google My Business listings as it gives businesses a basic public identity and a presence online. Having a well-maintained Google My Business listing will have a positive impact to how successful a business ranks in Google. Some of the simple measures include having the correct business name, address and phone number (citation discovery) and an up-to-date profile providing accurate content and relevant images which are optimised for both desktop and mobile search users.
