2017, Year of surprises from Google for Google Maps Marketing or Google My busin

Posted by alicefarnadize on July 27th, 2017

Our very own tech giant Google loves to keep the SEO Company on toes and life a bit interesting. The company is always known to bring something new on the plate every now and then but this year in 2017 it has gone overboard with surprises and updates in its products and services, especially Google Maps Marketing or Google My business whatever you feel like calling it. In just 6 months of this year it already announced 5-6 changes in their style of work. Let’s walk through these changes.

  • If you know anything about the local finder then you will be aware about the listings stating permanently closed. Well Google has swept the floor with their broom stick and know the searches will be free from all the closed listings. Earlier this year Google removed all the permanently closed listings from the Local Finder.
  • In spite of updating the Google plus in 2015, the older and the classic version of the platform was still accessible to the people and the businesses, however now it has got a full stop from Google as it has removed the ability to access your very own classic version of the Google plus.
  • Google offers the ability to check the edits of the business listings on the phone but not on desktop. Normally people used to check the status on MapMaker, however it is closed people were trying to find a new way. Google has given that new way to them. If you have done any new changes or edits in your business listing in regards to your Google Maps Marketing then you are in treat because “Google launches a platform for reviewing edits to business listings on Google Maps on Desktop.”
