New Google Features
Recently, Google made a few tiny adjustments to some of their online tools. It’s important to be aware of these changes so you can stay up-to-date on all the new features.
Google Review Update
Earlier this week, it was discovered that Google is testing a new feature on Google Business reviews. If you go to a local listing and browse the reviews, you may see a thumbs up with a “Helpful?” button under a review. Once you click on the “Helpful?” button, it means that you found the Google Business review useful. This “helpful” button is not displayed on all Google reviews, so it still could be in the early testing stages.
Google Maps Update
It appears that Google has removed the full business addresses from the Google Maps listing. When you do a search in Google Maps, it will display a list of the best matches on the left-hand side of the map. The map would show the business address of the local listing in the snippets on the left but that seems to disappear in searches.
