Google My Business puts your business info on Search, Maps and Google+ so that customers can find you, no matter what device they're using.

Here is the official Google announcement too that explains more about it: [googleandyourbusiness.blogspot.com...]

In the pre-launch demo I had with the Google My Business management team a couple months ago I just kept thinking about how much of the confusion this update was going to clear. Then when I got my demo account last week so I could actually start working with it, I could see how much more integrated and streamlined was going to make things. So much easier for SMBs that are trying to do it themselves!

Most local search consultants I work with are telling me the majority of their client accounts are upgraded - even many overseas and they re usually last to get upupdates.

Has anyone here been upgraded yet and had a chance to look around? What do you think so far?

I design and install built in wardrobes (closets). There is no correct category to choose from and Google wont let you make your own.

renomart, you need to just hunt and peck until you find a more general category that is a fit. So for example if you were doing a general listing in the yellow pages what broader category would you fit under?

And since your question is not about the update, if you have more questions you should probably start a new thread so we don't take this one off topic on a specific listing issue.
