Google My Business is Google's dedicated tool for the local positioning of businesses. You can use it to provide your customers with information about your business directly from Google and Maps or on Google+ via a description page.
As with all the services of the Californian brand, it is continuing to evolve. My Business has diversified and now offers new functions which can enhance your company's description page.
The changes offered to My Business Users include writing and editing an activity description and displaying a list of services.
Add a company description with Google My Business
Company descriptions will appear in the information panel (also called the Local Knowledge Graph) on the search results pages of Google and Google Maps. The description that you write will give the internet user more information and will enable them to choose between different establishments which appear on a similar search.
The text cannot exceed 750 characters and cannot contain a URL. The aim is not to send the user to a web page for more information. However, if you have a website, you can create a button that directs users there.
Company descriptions in Google My Business will not immediately be authenticated. They may have to be inspected. Google must ensure that the listing respects their requirements and mode of use.
