Google Changes Again: Places Becomes Google My Business

Google My Business?

Where or where, have Places for Business gone?

Google places for business and their map integration was huge for SEO professionals. For years we have all watched daily to see who may be where in the ranks of Google Places.

Google Places vs. Google My Business

What’s the difference? Well right now it doesn’t look like much other than the new mobile app released by Google. According to Google:

With the Google My Business app, you manage your business on your time. You can check customer insights, update your business hours, and share photos with customers, all from your phone or tablet.

Stay on top of reviews

Manage your online reputation from a single location: see reviews of your business, respond to them as the owner, and track your ratings over time.

Insights on your customers

Understand how people find your business and interact with your content, so you can reach more of the right customers.

Staying on top of reviews is vital for business success online and so is analytics. This app should be awesome and I look forward to using it.
