If you have logged into your Google My Business dashboard and can't find the business description, Don't Panic, it has been removed.

So What's Going On?

 

Google My Business has removed this section from the dashboard and will soon replace it with editable attributes. 

 

 

You Can Still Add via Google+

 

You still have the ability to add a business description via Google+:

We are not entirely sure what these "editable attributes" will look like or offer, I guess we shall just have to wait and see.

I didn't see this in your article, but if you click on "Manage Page" just below the tagline editor, it will take you to another page that fully allows you to edit the old description or write in a new one. Looks like Google tried to bury it from everyone.

Why however did Google make this update within Google My Business and say very confidently that you could still edit it through the G+ page itself, when it fact you couldn't in such a public way. You have to jump through hoops to do this.

Hi @Daniel M

 

They are removing it altogether and bringing in editable attributes, we will need to wait and see.
