SILICON SLOPES, Utah, Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move to help businesses take maximum advantage of the ever-changing Google landscape, Boostability, a leading provider of SEO and online marketing services for small to medium businesses, has released a guide designed to help businesses understand and utilize the new Google My Business update. "A Complete Guide to Google My Business" is available now, free of charge, from www.Boostability.com.
"Within the spectrum of Internet resources available to businesses who conduct some or all of their business online, Google My Business is an important development that will simplify the way companies market and conduct business on Google," said Travis Thorpe, Boostability founder and CEO. "Instead of creating the multiple pages formerly required to maximize their Google presence—a Google+ business page, a local listing and a Google Places account – Google has now consolidated these pages into a single My Business page. Our guide will help them understand what has changed and how they can best utilize the new advantages in Google My Business."
The guide shows the ways Google My Business is faster, easier and more inclusive to use than prior alternatives as follows:
- People can easily manage multiple businesses, reviews, Google Analytics and YouTube from one page.
- Customers will have easier access to leave posts, reviews or +1's for business.
- People can view important information such as performance through Insights, visitor trends through Google Analytics, Adwords campaigns and see important YouTube analytics.
- Setup and data is now more intuitive and getting information is easier and faster.
- Company reviews and +1's have now been combined into one search-powered page.
Google My Business allows individuals with Google+ profiles to create business pages based on three different areas:
- Storefront – such as restaurant, retail store, hotel etc.
- Service Area – such as a plumber, pizza delivery, taxi service, lawyer, etc.
- Brand – such as a product, sports team, band, cause, etc.
As part of its service, Boostability will help customers and clients set up and fully maximize their Google My Business page as part of their online marketing activities. As a first step, the company invites businesses to obtain a copy of the new "A Complete Guide to Google My Business."
