Hey guys, Vitor from Brazil here, after the latest changes, someone has managed to create a new profile of the GMB and put the description?
I tried to follow the tutorial below but there is no "Story" option! So I can't put a description....
https://www.seroundtable.com/edit-introduction-field-in-google-22484.html

Google officially said (https://support.google.com/business/answer/6262887) that soon the "editing attributes" will be available for all GMB profiles. Some say that removing this option was to avoid keyword stuffing of the spam profiles...

And, I'm creating a new client profile but can't put a Custom URL for maps, like plus.google.com/+client , this options is no more available? I always use "about" option in G+ business profile....

Thanks!

If you don't see a story section in your about me page, you'll have to add it by clicking the "Add Info" button:

Then it should give you the option to add the "Story" section

Hey Billy! It works! Thanks! :D

(Now I'm still looking for a simple custom URL like I used many times before....)
