Google My Business dashboard business information
Customer Reviews – EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

Customization based on your particular industry and business location(s).
With this proper set-up, you can expect to show up in ‘Local Searches’ ahead of most everyone else.
To the right, you will see the most important parts of the Google My Business dashboard:
