What exactly is Google My Business?


Google My Business is a program created by Google to help local businesses establish their place of business. While it was originally intended for  traditional brick-and-mortar stores that have physical locations in neighbourhoods even international companies often will register themselves on “Google My Business.”

In the search engine optimization world, it’s called a citation.  A citation is a listing of your website and business on a directory, it allows you to put all your business information needed such as website, hours, location etc. People can review you on these platforms, which in turn improves the listing’s ranking.

The process of building citations and getting them ranked on Google is all about providing accurate information for potential customers who are looking to buy your product or service online!

Google My Business is a great tool for any business that has physical locations, as it can help them find their location and even make the most of social media marketing.
