Google My Business Locations is an ever evolving and improving platform for managing Google Local listings for brick and mortar multi-location businesses.

I often say you could not pay me enough to take on a big chain or franchise, so I don't work with GMB Locations. But I admire consultants that are brave enough to tackle all the additional issues that can come up when you have numerous locations to manage.

Since I don't personally deal with "Locations" I need to rely on folks brighter than me to share info about it. So on that note...

Yext recently hosted a webinar featuring Andrew Shotland of Local SEO Guide, who walks you through some great info about GMB Locations. Here is the video for your viewing pleasure:
