Attributes Are Finally Coming to the Google My Business Dashboard

Posted · 10 Comments

As of today, I’m seeing attributes showing up inside the Google My Business dashboard. In the past, users could add attributes to listings via the Google Maps App.  This is the first time we’ve seen these show up to business owners via the Google My Business dashboard.

Here is an example of one I saw that I could add for my church inside the dashboard (it allows me to add that they have an online events calendar).


It’s important to note that the attributes a business owner can add or edit are not always the same thing that users can add or edit via Google Maps. For example, on the Google Maps app it was asking me if the church had WiFi or if it had a wheelchair accessible entrance. Neither of these showed up in Google My Business as options to add.

Also, not all users may be seeing this inside Google My Business currently since generally Google rolls out new features slowly.
