Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Welcome back to another episode of Local Search Tuesdays. This week’s episode is short and sweet, cause hey, it’s Thanksgiving this week and we know most of you are only thinking about turkey, football, and Black Friday deals right now.

I’ve posted a video every week since the beginning of 2020, and while this is pretty much a throwaway week with everyone off for the later part of the week, I didn’t want to break my streak, so I’m doing a quick little video.

Google My Business has a new name

Welcome back to another episode of Local Search Tuesdays. This week, I’m sharing some shocking breaking news: Google My Business is no more!

Ok, yeah, that intro was a little click-baity. Google My Business isn’t really gone, it’s just rebranded… again. GMB has been rebranded, and now it’s called “Google Plus Local Places for My Business Profiles on Google Maps by Google”

OK, just kidding…

Seems like every few years, Google decides to change the name of the local listings product. Considering the fact that there are still tons of people who call it Google Places, I’m sure this new name change is going to take a while to catch on.
