Why Google Guides
Help Communities

Why are Google Local Guides important?

We have taken many questions over the years regarding Google Local Guides. Here is some information that may be helpful in better understanding what they are and how they can help your business or community.

Google Guides can help your business or community by contributing accurate and helpful information to your Google My Business profile, leading to increased visibility, better customer engagement, and improved reputation management. Here are some ways in which they benefit:


  1. Add missing information: Google Guides can add missing information to your Google My Business profile, such as your business hours, website URL, phone number, and address. This can make it easier for potential customers to find your business online.
  2. Improve accuracy: Google Guides can verify the accuracy of the information on your Google My Business profile and make corrections if needed. This can help prevent misinformation or confusion that could lead to lost sales or negative reviews.
  3. Enhance customer engagement: Google Guides can contribute photos and reviews to your Google My Business profile, giving potential customers a better understanding of your business and what to expect. This can also encourage current customers to leave positive reviews and engage with your business.
  4. Build trust and credibility: By having a verified and accurate Google My Business profile, your business can build trust and credibility with potential customers. This can lead to more website visits, phone calls, and foot traffic.


Having your buisness or organization on Google Maps is more important than ever as people frequently look at the Google Map information served up by Google. 

Overall, having Google Guides contribute to your Google My Business profile can help improve your online visibility, customer engagement, and reputation management, leading to increased sales and business growth.

The Google Local Guide program is free for anyone to join, and is a fun and easy way to help contribute to the success of Google Maps. There is no requirement for anyone ever to pay to have a business or organization guided so don’t let any one charge you.

We support all the Local Guides out there creating content daily and helping their local communities better navigate their world with relevant and up-to-date information.
