How to Create a Google Business Page?

The platforms available to business owners through Google are a bit confusing. There’s Gmail, Gsuite, Google Plus, Google My Business, and Google Docs, Google everything. Interestingly enough, there is really no such thing as a Google Business Page. There are Facebook business pages. There was Google Plus (which is good for seo but not for traffic). And there is Google Sites. But no actual Google Business Page. What you’re looking for is most likely a Google profile, which is a Google My Business profile (listing).

A Google business “page” (profile) provides information so that potential customers can:

  • Business name
  • Phone number
  •  Website
  • Hours
  • Address
  • Description
  • Categories
  • Amenities/attributes
  • Photos
  • Reviews and replies
  • Ratings
  • Posts
  • Questions & answers
