Google My Business Adds Maps View
Posted by Joy Hawkins
Google My Business (GMB) has just released a new Maps View for the GMB dashboard which allows users to view all their locations on a map. To get to the view, you need to click the new “map” icon that shows up in the dashboard.
This new view has 2 features that I particularly like.
First, you can finally see Street View inside the GMB dashboard which will help business owners know what will be displayed in their knowledge panel and confirm if they pinned the location correct.
The second feature I like is when you start typing in the city of the location into the top search bar, the map automatically zooms in there and shows you which locations you have there. I can see this being a huge time-saver for big chains with tons of locations.
Here is the Google Help Center article about the new feature.
