    Question How to create intro/bio/story on GMB page in 2016?

    Anyone know how to edit or create a new introduction/bio in Google My Business. I used to just sign into GMB, manage the business and edit the bio but I can't see that option anymore.


    There's all the usual options (see screenshot) but no "bio" or "intro" anymore. How to create intro/bio/story on GMB page in 2016?-syhgknh.png
    From this screenshot you will see that the only options which I can edit (for the G+ classic view) are: - name - category - address - hours of operation - phone number - website URL



    No intro/bio showing on the About page: How to create intro/bio/story on GMB page in 2016?-sabpiyo.png

    Looking at the page in the new 2016 Google+ view, I thought I could click on "about" and edit from there but nope. This is all I see. (note: this page is new and not verified yet. thought i could still write a bio while waiting for the postcard though)

    hi RuggedSEO

    You need to make the changes at aboutme.google.com nowadays. If you're managing multiple pages you'll need to select the correct one from the drop down list under your profile photo once you're at the About me website.

    Thanks. That only let me edit the tagline & intro for the G+ profile though, not for the G+ business page.

    Even when I navigate to her G+ user profile, it only published the tagline, not the intro/bio which I created. Not sure why...

    This is what I see when I navigate to her G+ business page. No tagline and no intro.

    Hi RS, here are some threads that will help.

    If you mean GMB description, that stopped showing on page & was removed from dash in August.
    Consumers can't really get to the G+ Local page any more to see the description anyway.
