Local SEO Quick Tip: Update your Google My Business holiday hours

Update your GMB listing with your holiday hours

If you have a Google My Business (GMB) account, you may have recently received a notification from Google to confirm your holiday hours. If you are going to have different hours through the holidays and you haven’t taken the time to update your GMB listing yet, do it! Nobody likes to be misled by inaccurate information, and if your GMB details aren’t accurate, you may end up negatively affecting public trust in your business. Google factors good user experience into your score for local search, so make sure that your GMB listing reflects your current business hours.
