    Re: add a descriptor to your google local

    You just log into Your GMB (Google My Business now) dashboard and add the descriptor to the Business name. You have to be careful on what you add as there is still discussion on the benefits and pitfalls. Normally the descriptor should reference a city or Neighborhood or something like South Tucson.

    Thanks Justin!

    Also see the big thread here at the forum.

    At one point I say, just because she says you CAN, does not mean it's in your best interest to do so. Think very carefully before making any changes to NAP.

    I would have to agree with Justin and Linda on this one, just too many what ifs right now. I personally have not done this for any of my clients.

    Additionally, I believe you've been having a company do optimization for you. I'd advise leaving it to them and not making changes on your own or at least without discussing with them.
