How important is the GMB business name in terms as a ranking factor in 2021?

If i am searching for a plumber near me for example would a plumbing business with the keyword plumber in the business name have more authority in it in regards to ranking over a plumbers business who didn't have the keyword plumber in it? For example the plumbing businesses John Smith Plumbers Ltd vs John Smith Ltd?

Great advice Colan. I would recommend looking to use a KW in your business name that none of your competitors are using. When a searcher inputs this KW you’ll be on top of map section for a distance probably far greater than your actual service area.
