Google My Business: How to Add Your Business Fast

As the internet is evolving so does the business world, so there is every need to have your business listed on google my business  (GMB)to boost online presence and credibility.

The Google Maps function, formerly known as Google Places, is now part of the Google-my-Business dashboard for managing and tracking your online presence across Google’s various platforms including Google Local (Google Maps), Google+, Google Analytics and Adwords.

As you’re preparing to set up your listing, just a reminder – although Google will, in some situations, display businesses from surrounding communities in the “Local” search results (Maps), you are only allowed to register your business in the town or city in which you have a physical address.

The good news is;

You only require your Gmail account to get the job done
