What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is a tool for businesses and organisations to manage their online presence across Google, including Search and Maps. By verifying and editing your business information, Google can help customers to find you easily, and grow your online presence.
Benefits of using Google My Business
Google My Business helps you grow online.
- Credibility. Businesses that verify their information with Google My Business are twice as likely to be considered reputable by consumers.
- Traffic. When potential customers find you online through Google My Business, Google Maps will provide directions to your storefront from wherever they are—instantly.
- Visibility. If your hours and location are listed on Google My Business, Google knows when your store is open and where it is. For example, if you own a hair salon, and people in your area search for ‘haircut near me’ online, there’s a good chance Google Search will list your business in the results.
Before you can make changes to your Google My Business page, you first need to verify it.
