What is a Google My Business Listing and why do I need one?

Google My Business is a free tool for small to medium-sized businesses to manage their online presence, including Google Search and Maps. By verifying and sharing your business info with Google, it helps customers find your pizzeria and your story. 4 out of 5 consumers use search engines to find local information, and the majority turn to Google to do it; in fact, over 92% of mobile searches conducted worldwide happen on Google search.
