Setting Live Google My Business Info Tasks

‌‌
Business Data API provides results containing information about specific business entity from Google. The provided results are specific to the selected location (see the List of Locations) and language (see the List of Languages) settings.

Instead of ‘login’ and ‘password’ use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard

<?php
// You can download this file from here https://cdn.dataforseo.com/v3/examples/php/php_RestClient.zip
require('RestClient.php');
$api_url = 'https://api.dataforseo.com/';
// Instead of 'login' and 'password' use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard
$client = new RestClient($api_url, null, 'login', 'password');

$post_array = array();
// example #1 - a simple way to set a task
// this way requires you to specify a location, a language of search, and a keyword.
$post_array[] = array(
	"location_code" => 1023191,
	"language_code" => "en",
	"keyword" => mb_convert_encoding("RustyBrick, Inc.", "UTF-8")
);
// example #2 - a way to set a task with additional parameters
// after a task is completed, we will send a GET request to the address you specify. Instead of $id and $tag, you will receive actual values that are relevant to this task.
$post_array[] = array(
	"location_name" => "New York,New York,United States",
	"language_name" => "English",
	"keyword" => mb_convert_encoding("RustyBrick, Inc.", "UTF-8"),
	"tag" => "some_string_123",
);
// this example has a 2 elements, but in the case of large number of tasks - send up to 100 elements per POST request
if (count($post_array) > 0) {
	try {
		// POST /v3/business_data/google/my_business_info/live
		$result = $client->post('/v3/business_data/google/my_business_info/live', $post_array);
		print_r($result);
		// do something with post result
	} catch (RestClientException $e) {
		echo "n";
		print "HTTP code: {$e->getHttpCode()}n";
		print "Error code: {$e->getCode()}n";
		print "Message: {$e->getMessage()}n";
		print  $e->getTraceAsString();
		echo "n";
	}
}
$client = null;
?>

The above command returns JSON structured like this:
