Google My Business

Created: Tuesday, 18 October 2016 10:14

Get your business hours, phone number, and directions on Google Search and Maps — with Google My Business.

 

 INTRODUCTION

Google My Business listings are displayed to the right of general search results when viewed on your PC.

RBA Google MyBiz 1

Google My Business listings are the FIRST item displayed in relevant mobile search results on smartphones. Designed for the large number of mobile smartphone users, options to Call, Navigate to the business, or send details of the business to your mobile device are instantly accessible. Google My Business results are also displayed on Google Maps.

A listing may already exist for your business/organisation, with information gained from other online resources, such as local directory services. This does not however guarantee that the information displayed is correct.

Click here to see the benefits of claiming and managing your business on Google.

YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT

To correct or to claim and manage your listing, all you need is a Google login. If you already login to GMail, YouTube or any other Google service, you will have a Google account. If not, creating an account only takes a minute or two. You can create a Google account here.

 Once you have a Google account your are able to suggest edits to your business information, as seen in the image below. You may also suggest edits to any other business.

RBA Google MyBiz Suggest Edit

Suggested edits may include your address, phone number, business hours, website link or listing category. You may also upload a photo.

Note: The 'Suggest Edit' function is available to anyone. Some moderation is carried out by Google, however to manage your images, respond to reviews, etc, you will need to 'Claim' your listing.

CLAIMING YOUR LISTING

To Claim your business listing, first search for your business/organisation.  Note that you may need to include the term 'remuera' to trigger a My Business result.

RBA Google MyBiz Owner

In the above example we can see that the business has not been Claimed, with an 'Own this business?' link displayed.  To Claim your listing, simply click on the 'Own this business?' link to begin the validation process.

To validate your business, Google will send a letter to your physical business address. This will generally arrive within 2 - 3 weeks and will include a single-use PIN used to verify your ownership. Instructions on how to apply the PIN are included.

Note that you are not able to validate a business using a postal address.

Once you have claimed and validated your business you will be able to edit your listing, including managing photographs, updating your business hours, etc.

Tip: When describing your business, use complete sentences that incorporate the important keywords that describe your business.

Tip: Remember that a software robot will review and rank your listing - not a human! Before adding photos to your listing, name them using relevant terms and keywords, eg, not 345678.jpg Rather remuera-gallery-xyz-exhibition.jpg

Demo Feature 2

Nam te sonet cotidieque intellegebat, dicat ocurreret vulputate et vel. Sale augue aeterno ut sed, pri id delicata interpretaris. Id autem principes nam. No nec minim bonorum, deleniti delicata et his, te vix modus accusamus. Eum ignota hendrerit ad, vel ea prodesset inciderint temporibus. Pri ei melius utamur accusamus, ad suas quaeque recusabo mel.

Ex choro labores veritus pri, ei cibo utamur quo. Ut singulis dissentias eos, ex atqui volumus assueverit mel. Cu his inermis dolorem, verear dolorum qui ei. Est aliquid facilis admodum ne, vel zril invenire et. Errem fuisset reprimique no vis, ei quo quando honestatis.

Te fugit incorrupte theophrastus mea, ius suas qualisque ex. An audire laoreet pro, saperet insolens eu usu. Ne hinc dolor oratio sit, ad soluta mandamus est, eam eius nobis adipiscing ut. Oratio eleifend rationibus no sed. Ne sea sumo ubique, no pri eripuit menandri. Mei cu feugiat docendi. Dicta ignota laboramus vel ea, vel tota luptatum an, vel ea sale perpetua.
