Getting your Business listed on Google Places for Business is one of the most important Marketing Tasks for your company. Having a Google My Business account will allow you to manage your company’s Business Profile to connect with your customers across Google Search and Google Maps.

We can use your Google My Business Profile to create listings that will stand out when potential customers are searching online.
Your Google My Business Profile will contain basic information such as your business location, business category, phone number, hours of operation and customer ratings.
Google Maps is an extremely useful app that most people use regularly to get directions to locations. Google Maps Marketing should be part of your Digital Marketing Strategy to make it easy for your clients to find your business.
The objective of Google Maps Marketing is to have your business achieve as high a placement in the local business results as possible.
Proximity based results are one type of Google Maps listing and is based on your physical location. This type of search can be done from your computer or from a mobile device.
Ranked Google Maps results are another common type of maps result. If the user does not have location data enabled or is searching for a specific location, then Google Maps shows listings for a particular region. The ranking of these results is based on a comparison with other businesses nearby. Having your Google My Business Listing optimized will help you rank higher on these types of results not based on proximity.
In order to outrank your competitors, you should pay close attention to specify the areas you serve, verify your Google My Business Listing, and indicate both your primary and secondary categories relevant to your business. You should also write an optimized introduction as a summary of what your company does, the products or services you offer and what makes your company better than your competitors.
Google My Business Listings also allow you to include photos and images and you should take advantage of this to help your business stand out.
Customer reviews also play a part in how well your business ranks in comparison to others. These reviews or “citations” can be tracked and factor into your ranking.

Google Business Listings were previously managed through both Google Places and Google Maps. Later, they added Google+ Local as another location for Business Listings.
Google My Business was created as a way to consolidate the Business Listings from Google Places and Google+ Local into one dashboard.
Using Google My Business will allow you to manage your business listings in Google Search results and Google Maps.
Google is the first place most people look when searching online. Your business success depends on your customers being able to find you and differentiate your products and services from your competitors.
