Google My Business is a tool that aids in improving your local search ranking and helps get more customers with a more robust profile. Add store hours, additional categories, or a description of your business. Think of Google My Business as Google's version of Yelp.

Note: Google My Business is not intended for large big box stores or retail brands (even though they are all listed).
