What is Google My Business
Google My Business is a free tool created by Google that helps companies and brands to manage how their local business appears across both Google Maps and Google Search. Google My Business helps you to maintain your local search results. Local search results are those which are tailored to particular geographic locations and help users to find businesses that are nearby.
