2. Update your business info on Google Maps and Search

Keeping your profile information up to date (opening hours, address, website, contact information, reviews, and more) is vital.


Imagine if the customer comes to your business and it is not open because you forgot to update the opening hours in your Google Profile. Or they search for your business on Google and see that it's closed even though you are not, just because you forgot to update once again.


Customers will probably never come back after such a bad experience. They will also inform their friends and write reviews about it.

It is crucial to keep your profile up to date with fresh, engaging content as your latest Google My Business posts are visible among the first search results for your customers.


So if you don't add content regularly, it looks like your business is not active anymore.
