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.
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.
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
