The next series of Go-To Guides (S2)

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 2.57.15 PM.png


Did you know? We have an entire board dedicated to helping merchants understand how to use Google My Business. Check out our collection of Go-To Guides here:

Our second series of Go-To Guides covers a bunch of topics around how you can edit your business information on the Google My Business dashboard and how to handle Google updates. We also included an article about attributes and how they help to inform your customers, and took a closer look at managing hotels.


Additionally, we wanted to provide a helping hand when dealing with any big business changes or issues that might pop up while using Google My Business, such as duplicate listings, updating your account when a location closesmoves address, or what to do if your account is suspended.


If you have suggestions for things we should cover in an upcoming series, feel free to suggest them here.

Well, our listing is fairly new in the sense that we released our old location and listing and replaced it with a new one because of a company move. 

We recently took advantage of the GMB free site and made one. We also have a permanent domain and website hosted with GSuite on google sites. Our development team has finally completed the initial makeover for our old site and remapped the domain from our old site to the new.

Now with all this activity, it is finally time to release the free GMB site and replace it with our domain site on Google New Sites.  

Now for the $1,000,000.00 question: Our GMB does not appear to want to allow us to remove it and replace it with our www. site, so does anyone have a DIRECT, and SIMPLE answer for how to go about this? Our intent is to have our site show in our GMB listing instead of the Please help!!!

My location at Sears 1050 South Babcock St, Melbourne hours keeps changing.

Each week I have been using Google to suggest hours which changes them to the above hours, only to have them revert back to opening at 9am closing at 9am. My hours are correct at Please help me get this permanently corrected as this causes many Customer complaints.
