Thanks I got it, the only problem I'm having is adding links, I can't get that link tool to work properly.

Local pages don't have an option to have links added.

You can specify your website of course and you can write links in the
description - nowhere else.

This doesn't work for Google 'business accounts' the listings don't show up in the list in the top/right menu.

@Bea B

Two remarks:

 

1# your link isn't about a GoogleMyBusiness listing but about a MapMaker profile of a MapMaker User called "MaRkMyNaMe©"

 

2# we don't deal here about any MapMaker issues and even not about profles of MapMaker Users.

Please go to the  MM forum to get appropriate and better  help:

I'm just picking up on an old discussion because I'm really struggling to add a tagline to my Google My Business map listing - can anyone help? I have roughly 40 locations in Google my Business and I've added a tagline and intro into the relevant Google+ about me page (one the one though because I'm testing out solutions). But the info isn't pulling through on Google Maps or on my Google business listing.
