What is Google My Business (GMB)?

Google My Business (GMB) is a free tool that allows you to control and manage certain elements of how your business appears on Google Search and Maps. For example, your business name, location and opening hours through to customer reviews and more! Additionally, this information is placed in a content rich snippet to the side of search results. Therefore, giving your customers quick, relevant and correct information about your business.

To explain in more detail, you can read what we think of Google my Business pages for local businesses and whether you should have one of our recent articles.

What are the benefits of Google My Business?

Creating a Google My Business listing is an invaluable opportunity for local businesses. There are many benefits of Google My Business listings. The main benefits are:

  • Google My Business listings allow you to appear in maps and Google Local Pack listings.

What is a google local pack? It is a search engine results page (SERP) feature that appears on the first page of results for any search query with a local intent. Alongside the map, it features business listings for three places relevant to the search. Google creates these Local Pack results through its Google My Business listings, based on what the algorithm thinks are the most relevant results for that particular search query.

  • GMB listings are highly visible.

The Google Local Pack takes up huge real estate on the first page of Google search results. If you have ever done a Google Search you will notice that it is the first thing you see in the results.

  • Google My Business allows people to leave reviews

With a focus on social proof, google reviews provide invaluable feedback to prospective clients. Not only that, a recent study by Moz revealed that online reviews are thought to make up 10% of how search engines rank results.

While this opens you up to negative reviews this is not the end of the world. Take any negative review as a learning curve and respond with professionalism. Your response will show your prospective clients more about you than the actual review. Not only that, you can take the feedback and improve your services or products.

  • A Google My Business allows you to take control of your first impressions

By highlighting essential information, showcasing what makes your business unique and responding to reviews will build your business presence, trust and first impressions

  • GMB provides helpful insights

Your Google My Business page also provides helpful insights into your GMB Profile. Insights from views, clicks, engagement and more are available in your profile.

  • It’s free and easy to use

There’s the best bit! A Google My Business profile is FREE! On top of that, it is user friendly so you can create, manage and optimise your own GMB without any hassles.

Hint: When completing your GMB profile, enter as much information about your business as possible. The more complete your profile is, the more Google’s algorithm is likely to favour you. Additionally, make sure your information is accurate and up to date.
