Earlier week Google bought a change in GMB which added an option to insert the date the business opened. While we see many times that Google fetches data from other websites and integrate them into the business listings, Google will probably roll out updates to have all the option editable directly from GMB dashboard.

To Add a Business Description on Google my Business Listing,

  1. Login to your Google Business Listing account or open Google my Business app
  2. Select your business
  3. Click on Info or Business Info
  4. Tap the pencil icon and find the section that says business description.
  5. Provide the description which sets you apart from rest of the business
  6. The changes might take up to 3 days to reflect on the listing

We tested the updated to see how it appears on Google. If your description is good enough and your listing has a better visibility, then the update might appear sooner.

This update will indeed help to provide more information about the business to the local clients/visitors.
