What is Google My Business

What is Google My Business?

  1. Google My Business (GMB) is where a local business can have a search or Maps listing in Google.
  2. GMB results show in regular searches below the ads. The example to the right is called the “map pack.”
  3. Searches from mobile versus desktop are usually similar but not exactly the same.
  4. GMB results also show specifically in Maps searches.
  5. GMB can show as a Knowledge Panel result also.
  6. The Knowledge Panel only shows on desktop.
  7. The panel and is slowly being phased out in favor of a more uniform desktop and mobile search experience.
