It might not be the first time, but Google are hoping to create a directory just for business, it is going to be a place where businesses are able to create a sort of one stop shop feature. The business is able to create a cool online presence available through Google+, Maps and Search. Most Google users will be familiar with the services already being provided by Google, this is just a subtle addition that could provide more detailed information to consumers.
The new system will be based on the search giants AdWords platform, which is a really easy way for Google to compile this directory of businesses, as the business information is already available to use. As the directory grows, Google will able to use this data to provide precise information for searches. The business owner could take advantage of this early before it is dominated by those big business with big marketing budgets.

There is even an app available in Google Play, it is free and allows the user to update their data, share news, images and check the stats too, this is handy for people on move as they can update information and even add photos from events or shows from their Smartphone.
