Recent Google My Business Updates
There have been some big changes to Google My Business as of late! 😱 Because Google My Business, reviews, and optimizing your profile are important, we wanted to keep you up to date.
1️⃣ Google is running a test on displaying business services info in the Local Business Overview Tab. These services used to appear in a separate tab but Google is testing displaying the information in the overview section of Google My Business profiles in search results. This means your services will be prominent to search users 👀 when your listing is triggered – make sure your profile has been optimized!
2️⃣ Interestingly, Google is testing displaying owner information 👤 from third party sources like Facebook in the overview tab of Google My Business listings as well. Take a look at this link for an example of what we’re talking about!
3️⃣ Google is now notifying businesses when a flagged review 👮 has been removed from their Google My Business profile. This will make review management so much easier! It’ll be nice knowing that false reviews have been removed for good.
That’s all for now! Make sure your Google My Business profile has been optimized 💯 and that you’re keeping an eye on your reviews. This is invaluable when it comes to local SEO!
