Hi All, With the recent update of Google removing facility to edit Google My Business desc I have been trying to edit via Google Plus. However this keeps taking me back to Google my business. Can anyone advise how I can still edit the desc for a local verified page?

 

Thanks,

Sara

Thanks Helmut. In summary it seems to have lost importance, but its still nice to know how to edit it through aboutme.google.com.

Many thanks
