Greg’s SEO presentation from the Driving Sales Executive Summit

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.
