Google My Business Portal Gets A Facelift & Design Update
Google streamlines the Google My Business dashboard making it easier for businesses to get the answers they need.
Google quietly announced in the Google Business forums a new design update for the Google My Business portal. The new update has a new navigation to make it easier to access the primary features and more straightforward to access multiple locations if you use Google My Business Locations.
You will see new tabs and buttons to more common actions you want to take, such as editing, photos, insights and reviews. Google also said merchants with multiple locations or Google+ brand pages will see an updated management experience with two tabs: one for “Locations” and another for Google+ “Brand Pages,” where you can view your listings or pages in either a card and a list format. There are also “Contact support” links that provider faster support.
Mike Blumenthal posted a video tour of the new portal, saying the changes provide “improved organizational structures, better menus, easier navigation and faster response times.”
