Don't Miss These 4 New Google Business Profile Features

Lots of changes are happening in the Google Business Profile world. Here are the 4 that we think matter:

Change 1: Google's Bard can now generate business descriptions on behalf of businesses. Just look for the Suggest description button under the edit description area. This isn't the best news for ProfilePro since that's one of our (many) features, but we wanted to share this with you anyway.

Change 2: Some profiles currently do not show Questions & Answers on the desktop view. We first spotted this yesterday and will keep our eye on it. Are they phasing our Q&As? We shall see.

Change 3: Some users are reporting having the ability to specify whether dogs are allowed inside their business under the newly created Pets attribute category. Be sure to update yours accordingly since the more attributes you set, the more likely you are to rank #1.

Change 4: Google offers free appointment scheduling links through Google Calendar now which you can connect to your Google Business Profile to give potential customers an easy way to book services with you. Learn more here. In our research we found a fairly strong correlation between service businesses ranking higher on Google Maps and having an appointment link on their GBP & website. The full findings of our complete ranking analysis which compares over 25 variables will first be available on our YouTube channel so be sure to subscribe here to not miss it & other marketing tips.

Speaking of our YouTube channel, our latest video was a really cool one about how you can use free AI tools to create ad videos even if you're a total beginner. Click the thumbnail below to watch it.

Google Business Profile Software

ProfilePro tip of the week:

Add at least 30 services to your Google Business Profile if Google allows you to. We found a strong correlation between having 35+ services listed and ranking higher. ProfilePro can generate these for you.

This morning (yeah, it's been a long day!) we released v2 of ProfilePro which makes it a lot easier to master the art of ranking #1 on Google Maps. If your extension didn't automatically update it should soon.


Let's not belabor (weak pun on Labor Day coming up) the point. We offer the following Google Maps marketing services:

  • Google Business Profile management services

  • Listings/citation management software

  • Reviews management software
