Earlier in 2022, Google announced they were getting rid of Google Business Manager. If you haven’t used it in the past, this used to be where you could manage your Google My Business profile. Now Google is redirecting all traffic to Google search, allowing owners to directly manage their business profile from Google search.
If you want to share access to your Google Business page with a manager, you can do this directly from Google Search.
