Your Google My Business Profile appears on the right hand side of Google when a user performs a search for your company. This is a section where people can find out things about you, such as your opening hours and telephone number as well as checking out any reviews. You can set this profile up through a verification process, or claim an existing listing the same way.
Google My Business, formerly known as Google places is a key part of Local SEO. You can optimise it for keywords, through your business description, images, videos, posts and more. It has become more and more of a social channel, encouraging questions, reviews and images from users, whilst the owner can post about events, sales or general updates. There are great new analytical insights also, about the number of phone calls, most popular times of day and other demographics.
