Google business


What is Google Business feature?

If you want to succeed with a business directory website, do not fill it with duplicate listings. Google will penalize your website for duplicate content.

If you want to display businesses on each keyword, just enable the Google Business option and your directory website will start showing the results from Google on non existing keywords.
