Google my business reviews - what are they and how do I get them?

If you own a local business, you probably have your location on Google Maps. This virtual location is driving traffic to your business, so it's important to be aware of it and know how to take control. Google provides a free service, that does exactly that called Google My Business. Google My Business is an online platform that allows business owners manage how they are viewed online.

If you haven't already, make sure to claim your business with Google.

Businesses that are verified on Google Maps are considered to be twice as reputatable as non-verified businesses.

Follow the link below to see step by step instructions by Google.
