So long Google+ Local!
Good riddance Confusion!
Google "My Business" Launches Today!
ONE UNIFIED DASHBOARD and TONS OF COOL UPGRADES!
This launch signifies a major investment in local businesses, and stabilizes the Google local business foundation for the future.
When I had my 1st demo of the product over 2 months ago, I was so excited to get the big picture of what Google had in store for us. But then when Google upgraded my account last week so I could start working with "MB" I was truly amazed at how seamless and functional it is.
So many of the local bumps and changes lead to this update. And I'm super impressed with how much of our feedback and suggestions, over the past 3 years have been integrated. It's really everything we've been wanting and more!
You can see screenshots and a list of new key features at the G+ announcement below.
BREAKING: Google "My Business" Launching Now! Say Goodbye to Google+ Local - This Changes Everything!
I also link to all the official Google resources there too. I've been working for 5 days on screenshots, images and in learning the new product, so I could lay it all out for you guys and it's way too much to even try to post here but you can get to it all via G+.
Let me know what you think - or if you have any questions.
(FYI - I'm spread thin helping Google do launch PR and answering questions at the new Google My Business forum, my forum, G+ and numerous other places. So I'll get back here to answer any questions as soon as I can.
ALSO if you run into any bugs or problems, please let me know so I can pass it on to Google or get an update about the issue for you.)
