What is Google My Business?

Google My Business is the latest from Google. It has been set up to integrate Search, Maps and Google+. Now everything comes under one umbrella and appears right at the top of the page – just under Adwords. It’s an important innovation as it displays well on any device and helps your business get prime real estate on Google – without fees.

Position, Position, Position

The biggest deal about Google My Business is the position it gives you on Google.

Google My Business listings show up just under Google Adwords, in prime position. If your Google My Business listing is optimised with popular search terms your listing will appear at the top of the page with other Google My Business listings – whenever someone searches with those terms.

Your competitors will definitely be in this space. You need to be there too.

If, for example, I search on “Restaurants Maroochydore” this is what I will see.

Right at the top of the page – the Google My Business listings – A to G. Google has given Google My Business top billing – because it can.

And when you hover over a Google My Business listing or click on it… it will appear loud and proud on the top right of the screen with images, maps and all your details. Just like in the screen shot below
