Google My Business — made easy.
Google is the most prominent provider of search, maps, apps, and voice assistants on which your business can be found by consumers, but manually updating your digital knowledge can be a painful process. Thanks to Yext’s integration with Google My Business, you can make updates to the facts about your business directly in our platform and publish them to Google in real-time. Read on to learn how we make updating Google My Business simple and quick.
Billions of searches are made by consumers on Google’s properties every day, so you want the data they can see about your business to be accurate. The Yext Knowledge Network gives you the unprecedented control and speed you need to power accurate information across Google Search, Google Maps, Waze, Google Home, Google+, and more. Even trigger verification and act on ownership conflicts, without ever leaving the Yext dashboard.
Google offers a variety of unique capabilities that help businesses engage and interact with their customers. By updating Google through Yext, you can take advantage of these capabilities beyond what's possible through manual management. Monitor and respond to questions consumers ask about your business across your locations on Google, as well as publish pre-answered FAQs. And our Publisher Suggestions feature detects consumer-suggested edits to your listings, enabling you to act on them directly from Yext.
Everyone likes to be first. And as Google continues to make enhancements to the Google My Business API, you may be able to take advantage of new capabilities through Yext before they become available in the Google My Business dashboard. With access like this, you can stay ahead of the competition and utilize the latest updates right away.
Complete and consistent listings across the search ecosystem can improve your Google presence. By making Yext your single source of truth for the digital knowledge about your business, you can manage your business on Google, and on all of the other maps, apps, voice assistants, search engines, GPS systems, and social networks that consumers use to search.
"Without Yext, we wouldn't have had any way to update our store hours across Google, which we now rely on to serve our community of customers with transparent, real-time updates specific to their neighborhood stores. And the addition of Google to the Knowledge Network enables us to enter new communities with all of the critical location and contact information, so we can connect with the local neighborhood the moment our doors open."
"Google has always said managing your content on Google My Business should help with impressions, so ensuring that the correct content is on that platform is important to us. Before Yext we were spending manual effort to ensure our presence was consistent and our locations, images, descriptions and so forth were correct."
"GMB impacts search engine ranking and optimization, which is something we have been trying to get our arms around for a long time. Some of the social stuff overlaps into rankings and organic traffic to our website as well. The Yext platform is helping us to improve our organic presence from a number of angles, and it fits in nicely as the foundation to our overall local marketing strategy."
