Google MyBusiness, lets you add updates to your listing
This may not sound ground breaking but if you have a new post, page, event, offer or product this is a great tool.
If you’ve done your branding well, you’ll receive lots of visits from people googling your brand name. And when they do that they see your main listing, if you’ve added an update, guess what your visitors will see underneath your other details.
How do you add a post to Google MyBusiness?
Very simply click on posts at the side of your Google MyBusiness control panel and click post.
You’ll see a screen where you can add an image, some text and a link. You can also add a call to action to the link.
But this is not just for straight posts.
- If you’ve got an event, you can add more details, like when and where the event is.
- Running offers? Add it here and you offer is up front and centre.
- Added a new product? It goes right in here with more information.
Google MyBusiness posts expire from the front page after a while, so you need to keep on top of them. Handily Google will email you when they need topping up.
Even if you don’t update, the posts don’t disappear they hang around to add more detail to your profile. And more information on your Google MyBusiness profile helps build the content they hold on your business, which means you’re improving your website’s Search Engine Optimisation.
