Google is constantly changing what is required and not required in your Google listing. Something new could pop up after you just updated everything a few days ago.

The big question is, "How do I know when to update?"
The answer to that question is, you should always be on the lookout for changes but most importantly, whenever Google sets out to release a big update. That should be the first indication to check your listing and make sure all the required fields are filled in and not left blank.

You might be wondering how do I know what is required? The more information you provide for people looking for your service or company, the better. It lets Google present you to the world properly because there is information that could help someone find you.

Top things to make sure you have corrected:

Description
Category
Address
Hours

Any updates google has released (check with your web administrator or marketing professional)
The latest update was on March 2019

IMPORTANT: Not updating according to google can affect you negatively and mean less phone calls and less search views, resulting in a decrease number of customers.

One part of your google business listing that is not often used is your posts. Creating a post for a special event, sale, product, or anything new can help increase traffic to your site.

Taking time to fill in each one of google requirements can really boost your listing and help optimize it.
