Google has released a new feature tied to Google My Business (GMB) locations that allows users to ask questions and provide answers about a location directly within mobile search results and Google Maps. The feature does not currently appear to be accessible on desktop devices. It is available on all mobile devices from Google.com web search, and Android devices from the Google Maps app.
Last night (8/17/17), Google sent out a large number of emails that look like the following. These notifications were distributed to the email list tied to Google Search Console accounts that may be impacted by new security warnings in the Chrome browser. In this post, we’ll briefly address what this means and what you should do about it.
Google has been moving away from Google+ as a platform for quite some time. On June 22, they took it another step further with the roll-out of Google Posts to any company with a Google My Business account. Last year, if you were a business that had a verified Google+ account and you posted to it, it was likely to show up in Google for users that searched your brand name. Now, “Google Posts” appear as if they are starting to take their place.
