Google My Business

Google announced a suite of tools on Thursday morning for business owners, offering them a one-stop shop to update their business information, add photos, read reviews and, of course, use Google+. The service, called “Google My Business,” seems to be aimed at those who have yet to figure out how to “get on Google” so to speak; in fact, there’s a button that even uses that same expression. However, somewhat buried in today’s announcement is news that this is now going to be the default experience for others who were already using Google’s other business-focused services, including Places for Business and the prior version of the Google+ dashboard. These users will now be upgraded to Google My Business, the company notes. After signing up and filling in the requisite information, Google My Business will add the business information to Google Search, Google Maps and Google+, allowing customers to find the business no matter what device or service they happen to be using at the time.
