To understand the importance of a Google My Business (GMB) listing, it is worth looking at how you now search online for things yourself. Depending on your search, do you go directly to a website like your own, or do you view a map, read a review, click to call, or view shop opening hours directly on the Google search results page?
The power of a Google My Business listing appearing in the search results with all this information means that many people no longer need to click through to a website. The Google results page is fast becoming the main event as opposed to the gateway.
This is why it is now critical that your enterprise has an optimised and effective Google My Business (GMB) listing.
