How To Tell If A Location Has A Google My Business Listing and How To Link To It.

Remember Google Places? Remember Google Local? Google Plus? Google Maps?

They're now all the same thing, thank God. If you've heard the term "Google My Business," it's actually a really good thing for your business. Your Business' Google My Business listing gets a ton of SEO real estate on Google's search engine results page when users are searching for your business name, address, phone number or even keywords related to your business that do not include your business name. For example, "coffee shops in rochester hills, mi" triggers maps results first. These Maps results are triggered by and tied to optimized Google My Business listings.

I've blogged at length about Google My Business, but also have created this video for those of you small business owners or marketers of emerging brands who may not have any idea the status of your business listings as it relates to Google My Business.

If you have one location or 500+ or anywhere in between, here's how to find out the status of each of your locations' Google My Business Listing.

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
