This includes setting up GMB accounts, assigning the proper ownership, and fine-tuning the detailed content of the listing — sometimes to a significant degree. This is one part of a good strategy for managing your online visibility.

Because of its potential importance, both direct and in synergy with your other web assets, we advise a studied approach to completing a Google My Business profile. Today’s value of a well-crafted listing can hardly be overstated and it looks likely to become even more valuable, especially in mobile and local SEO (search-engine optimization). As SEO pros at Yoast have noted, unlike past years, a Google My Business listing is not a “set it and forget it” asset — it is part of your online identity, an indicator of your business’s vitality, and should work in concert with your brand, your other web properties, and your presence on social media.
