So almost two years ago I started a local real estate business site.

I followed Jay's Local SEO Webinar and instantly got Google My Business associated with my local site. Thanks Jay.

Today I got a message from Google encouraging me to add content (200-300 words).

Does anybody know or do this or know of any benefits from doing this?

Hey guys, got a message back from Jay and it's a GO!

He uses it for his clients for their local SEO and it's good Google Juice.

Thanks for the help!

I would suggest the same, as where I know very little about live post on Google.

Hey Todd,

Sounds like Google is trying to mimic LinkedIn.

As long as you're allowed to add links back to your business site, it will definitely help your SEO.

If no links are allowed, personally, I wouldn't bother publishing. It's a lot like guess blogging.

How about sending Jay a Private Message to get his insight? He seems to be pretty knowledgeable about all kinds of things here.

Wishing you all the best.
