Google my Business now allows Taglines

Hi guys, just thought this was interesting and wanted to share especially that I recently just asked about taglines for Google my Business pages. From some expert answers, you initially needed to be a Brand page converted into a GMB page in order to have a previous tagline displayed.

 

Click the "Edit Profile" button to edit your tagline.

However, the "about me" button (!) now sends you to the edit info page.

I have no idea when they rolled this out, but happy it's included.

I can't figure out how you got to this?

@Barry_Schwartz this option only exists for brand pages.

Hi Barry! I was on my profile page of the new Google+ redesign,  saw the "Edit Profile" button found on the bottom left of the Cover photo, beside the "About Me" button and clicked it. I was able to edit my personal, branded and business pages taglines.

Hi Barry! Honestly, I viewed a competitors Google My Business local page that had a tagline and wanted to do the same. I was never able to find the edit link to create a tagline until now haha.

@Johann Generao that's pretty cool. I guess no one really knew this was an option until now. The only downside I see is that the description only shows up on G+. It doesn't appear to show up on Google search or Google Maps.

Thank you Joy, I would never have been on the lookout for that link if you didn't assist me with my previous tagline question!

Does it show the tagline straightaway in your searches?

@vikas s

 

It's an interesting question (supposed I understood it right)

 

I tried searching for a certain tagline  of one of my own pages as I've set it to "a spcialist for GoogleMyBusiness, GoogleMaps & GoogleMapMaker"

 

And I can answer your question now as below:

1# Searching for the quoted tagline (or just parts of it) doesn't bring (until now) any result at all.

2# Googling for the business in question doesn't shows the tagline  with the knowledge graph at all

3# Searching the business in question on GMaps doesn't shows the tagline  with the Maps result at all

4# opening the G+ business page URL in the new modus of G+ will show the tagline
