May’s Google My Business Updates

mdpmupdateAt MDPM Consulting, we always stay on top of the latest Google updates. Recently, Google implemented some new updates in Google My Business. What changes will Google be making? How will these changes impact your local SEO strategy?

What’s New in Google My Business?

There are a number of new details and features available, including:

  • More Review Details: Now, you can see all of a company’s reviews, not just the top five. As a result, clients can now factor in a variety of experiences when choosing to visit a dentist, or book a room in a hotel.
  • Location Details: Now, you can see more detailed information when you visit your business page. For example, you can see details regarding what a restaurant offers, reservation information, appointment information, and other factors that can impact whether a person chooses a business or not.
  • Photo Selection: Now you have a choice! You can select which photos Google+ will display first in a search result. You can really help put your practice’s best foot forward.
  • Use Place ID to Create Locations: You can match locations on Google Maps and match them with unverified accounts.
  • Transfer Locations: If you have one business with multiple locations, you can divide these into individual accounts, allowing local managers to operate the accounts for their location.
