Google My Business App Replacement

Google My Business App Replacement: What Does It Mean?

They’ve teased it for months now, but it looks like Google is finally starting to make the big shift to replace the Google My Business app! What does this mean for your business? Let’s talk about it. 

What is the Google My Business App? 

Up until now, this app is where business owners can go to check in on and manage their business listings. This includes updating contact information, ensuring the appearance on Google is set up correctly, appearing in Google searches, etc. 

Why Is Google Replacing It?

They’re getting rid of the Google My Business app because they want business owners to shift to managing their listings in Search, Maps, and their respective apps. In their eyes, this is making everything more concise, rather than having a whole other app to manage listings. 

How Do I Make the Change?

Google is emailing small business owners with visual instructions on what the change will entail and what they need to do to make the switch. They’re also posting these instructions on their social media. 

How Do I Keep Up?

Google changes a lot. Like, every day. Whether it’s app interfaces, their algorithm, or countless other ways Google is involved in everyday life of your business, it’s a lot to keep up with! In fact, it’s nearly impossible to do so all while keeping the focus on the management of your company. 

The good news is, you’re not alone! The AD Leaf is here to help guide you through this change and any other ones Google rolls out, allowing you to concentrate on growing your business in different ways.
