Google Local Shake Up: Google My Business rolls out.

Small Businesses have the hardest time keeping up with Google Local optimization, and simply keeping their pages on Google Local. It seems that every 6-12 months there is another shake up at Google and yet another way to do things. Aside from making website owners mad and those who consult them crazy, these repeated changes have done little to fix the overall problems with Google’s system.  The overall problem is that they want a perfect way to verify every business and they want only to cater to local bricks and mortar folks. And they want an automated way to work with multiple offices and multiple businesses in the same office address whilst avoiding fraud.

Spendid.

Now they have added a new dashboard to manage all of these collective previous disastrous efforts in one place. So are you ready for it?
Log in to your Google Account and then head to http://Google.com/mybusiness

This is an effort for small businesses who have YET to find their way onto Google to get there. Here is the problem. For many who have already found there way there, this is yet another layer of confusion in what is already a mess.  (At least the mess is now in one place or can be collected there and FIXED. That alone is a good thing and an improvement.) That said, this is a VERY big change and we are going to be working with our clients to navigate it in the coming weeks to make sure that their local optimization is up to snuff.

For our Do it Yourself friends, we offer a link to the following resources that we found helpful:

Danny Sullivans Tour of the new Google.com/myBusiness is probably the best quick way to get familiar with it.

If you have a Non Local Brand, we highly recommend that you visit his article about that


As always if you have questions, we are here to help DIY Small Businesses who are working to build their businesses online.

NOTE: Regardless of what you think of these changes, they are IMPORTANT to your small business to know and understand. They are also REALLY IMPORTANT to make sure that your site is up to date on them. You do not want to lose out on traffic / opportunities.
