Google My Business account allows potential customers to search for a specific business of their choosing and view details such as names, addresses, phone numbers, special offers and images produced by the business. The owners of these businesses require a verification in order to gain access to manage a profile in the form of a text, a postcard or phone call, meaning that it is also a very secure method of creating an online business presence.
Google my Business is the culmination of Google other projects such as Google Places for Business, Google Listings and Google+ Business pages. By combining these tools into one singular application, it is made easier for businesses to display their features such as service, location and reviews in one place.
