Updated: Sep 9, 2022

Google My Business is changing to Google Business Profile, accessible only through Google Search and Google Maps. In this blog and video tutorial, we'll show you how to update your Google Business profile in just a few minutes. It's now easier than ever to keep your business information up-to-date!

Why is updating my Google Business profile important?

Google is the world's most popular search engine, and when you have a well-optimised business profile, it can help increase your visibility in search results. Potential customers can find your business more easily, and you can connect with them through news updates, photos and offers.

Google Business Profile builds trust

Keeping your profile up-to-date helps you build trust with potential customers. When they see that you're regularly updating your information, they'll be more likely to engage with your business.

How to update your Google Business Profile

Here's how to manage your Google Business profile through search or maps:

  1. To make changes, use your Chrome browser to navigate to Google Maps or to Google Search.

  2. Google your own business.

  3. Don't click on your ad (or you might incur a pay-per-click (PPC) charge)

  4. Click on Update my Business

  5. Make your updates and Save.

You can also add and enhance sections of your profile, like your hours of operation, products and services offered, and more.

Plus, you can now link to your website and social media accounts directly from your Google Business Profile. Watch the video tutorial below to see how it's done!
