    Google My Business Description

    Hi,
    I know it use to be a no-no to use the Practice Name or City Name in the description on your Google My Business Profile. Is that still true?
    Thanks!

    Re: Google My Business Description

    I'm sure others will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you would be okay to use the name and location just one time. If you do more than that, you can possibly trigger a penalty.

    Just my two cents.

    I agree with Scott, but if repeat name, should be the very 1st words to be safe.
