A Google My Business (also referred to as “GMB”) page is the most powerful tool that you probably aren’t using.
Attract new customers with your Google My Business Profile on Google. Your GMB Profile, when optimized and properly setup, appears right when people are searching for your business or businesses like yours on Google Search or Maps.
Directly from Google:
“Google My Business makes it easy to create and update your Business Profile—so you can stand out, and bring customers in. Not only does your Google My Business listing increase your chances of showing up in the Google Local 3-pack, but your GMB page will show up with your Business Profile on Google when people look for you on Search & Maps.

Why Is My Business Not Coming Up On Google?
