Google My Business has been a free tool for organizations to list their businesses online, which has been essential for ranking in local SEO (search engine optimization) searches. Recently, Google has been sending out surveys asking businesses what they would want if Google My Business became a premium paid service, as this would change the nature of a free Google search. The San Diego SEO service experts at Saba SEO discuss a few of the products that may be available if Google My Business offers premium features for a fee.
