The Best Guide to Add Your Business on Google Maps

2. Add New Location

On the main dashboard, click ‘Add New Location’ on the left sidebar panel.

3. Enter Business Name

Next, enter your business name and click on ‘Next.

5. Point Exact Location

Next, Google will show a map of the area of the address you indicated. Drag the pin to the exact location of your business and click on Next.

6. Enter Address

7. Add Other Information

Enter your business phone number and website. This information is optional. Then, click on Next to continue.

8. Verify Connection

Google will ask you to verify your connection with the business. Without verification, your business will not be listed on Google Maps. Click Finish to verify.

9. Add Other Information

You can choose a postcard with a verification ID sent by mail to the address you indicated. If you’ve provided your business phone number, you’ll also have the option of verifying your business through a telephone call.

Once verification is done, your business listing will go live on Google Maps. Users will be able to locate and get directions to your business, leave reviews, view photos, and other details. Then, you’ll be able to respond to reviews, create promotional posts, and track business analytics such as search volume, the number of times directions to your business were requested, etc.
