Google My Business allows you to create a free business listing and connect with Google customers who use Google Search and Maps. For instance, when you search for an entity on Google search, you will see the profile appear on the right with contact information and location (if they are listed on GMB). Moreover, most of the business centers are listed on GMB. Also, another advantage of listing your company under GMB is that, when you search for related content or companies in the location, your company listing in the same location pops up as an option to choose from for the customer.
