Ep. 46: Google My Business, Phasing Out Third Party Data, And How To Avoid Bad Web Agencies

August 20, 2021

Should you be leveraging Google My Business as a small business owner? What is latest on the end of third party data? What should you look for in an agency to keep from getting taken advantage of?

The short answer is yes, you should leverage Google My Business. Without a GMB listing you won't be able to get Google Reviews for your business. Think of it as a second website. Google has joined the trend of phasing out third party data. An easy way to tell that someone doesn't have your best interest in mind when it comes to building your website is if they won't give you access to your own site.
