Google launches 'Google My Business'

Noticed anything different happening on Google recently? Well, if you have a Google+ Local account or a Google Places listing for your business, you should now have been upgraded to the new 'Google My Business' account which merges search, maps and Google+ bringing all your business information into one place.

Google+ Local, Google Places and Your Business

If you serve local markets, it's going to be hugely beneficial to you to have an up-to-date Google+ profile.

Google+ isn't as big as Facebook yet, and the facility to search local Google+ pages  from within a Google+ account may not be well known, however, your Google+ Local page will still be displayed in Google's search results with a pointer on the map for people searching for services in a particular area.
