Easy to Use
Google has consolidated Google Places, Google Plus Brand Pages and Google Local into one interface, much to the relief of Google Plus users everywhere. Since then, brand owners have been benefiting from the easy to use Google My Business dashboard, which lets you monitor performance and access Analytics and AdWords all from one place.
Lots of Info
But these are not the only benefits to companies minding their Google My Business. From the easy-to-use dashboard, business owners can also manage the information displayed on Google Maps, collect and respond to reviews as they come in, track website page views, clicks and demographics, as well as monitor engagement and manage your Google Plus page at any time.
Easy to Fix
Who hasn’t found that they have a number of business pages collected up over the years? Perhaps they are under different logins too and basically its all a bit of a mess. As long as you can log into each page as the owner then you can assign ownership of the page to a new owner until all pages are under the same ownership account.
Options in Settings
Under settings there is an option to connect a local page and a brand page together which effectively moves the local attributes over to the brand page ie reviews, verification, map connectivity. Then the ‘old’ local page is labelled as a backup and you can move forward with one primary branded local page.
