Google My Business just got easier.
Google is the most prominent provider of search, maps, and apps, but manually updating your location data can be a painful process. Thanks to Yext’s integration with Google My Business, you can make your updates directly in our platform, then publish to Google at any time. Read on to learn how we make updating Google My Business fast and simple.
The information you publish on Google is extremely visible, so you need to be able to update it quickly. The Yext PowerListings® Network gives you unprecedented control of your location data across Google Search, Google Maps, Google+, and more.
By updating Google through Yext, you get access to unique capabilities beyond what’s available through manual management or even the Google My Business API. Our exclusive Publisher Suggestions prevents data from being overwritten by Google updates, enabling you to accept or reject suggested content directly from within the Yext dashboard.
Everyone likes to be first. As Google continues to update the Google My Business API, you'll occasionally be able to take advantage of new capabilities through Yext before they become available in the Google My Business dashboard. You'll stay ahead of the competition and leverage the latest updates — the moment Google launches it.
Consistency across the channels helps your Google presence. Make Yext your single central location data source, and watch every update appear across Google and all the other sites, maps, apps, and location services in the PowerListings Network. You'll save time and get found faster.
“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 PowerListings 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.”
