Nowadays, everyone search everything on google and trust the results. So claiming business on google is a good option to develop it. Google My Business helps you to get rid of customer finding struggle. You just have to register your business, after that customers will contract you through google.

It is essential for SEO and it is a good thing, but with this it’s also a big step to getting on the map, period. Even if you don’t have a brick-and-mortar location, verifying your business with Google will make you searchable and findable.

Steps to Claim Business on Google

Claiming business on google is a simple task.

Create your Google My Business listing

Firstly, navigate to https://www.google.com/business/ to create (or find) a listing for your business. This post will spell out each step of the process, but shout out to Google’s UX designers for making this as foolproof as possible.

First, search for your business name to see if it’s already listed on it. If it shows up, you can click Manage and skip to the verification section. If it’s not on Google already, select “add your business to Google”.

The next screen will ask for the name of your business. For instance, if your LLC is named differently than your storefront, go with the name of the storefront.

You’ll then need to choose the category that your business fits into. Hopefully, this is simple, e.g. retail, consulting, or restaurant. Google provides a dropdown, so choose the category that you typically use to describe your work. The next step prompts you to add a physical location. Even if you do not have a storefront, I recommend adding an SEO.

2. Verify Listing

After registering, you have to verify listing on Google. There are different ways to verify.

Instant Verification

If your business uses Google Search Console, and you should, it’s likely that you’ll be able to instantly verify by logging into Google using your work email. Keep in mind, you or your web needs to verify your business via Search Console.

Postcard Verification 

To verify by postcard, Google will send a physical postcard to the address you’ve listed in your profile. The postcard has a code on it, you simply need to pluck it out of your mailbox and input the number into GMB manager.

Phone Verification

Similar to verifying by mail, using the phone number you listed for your business, you can receive a text message to that number. The text will contain a code to enter into My Business manager.

Email Verification

Lastly, email verification. If you choose this option, Google will send an email to your work email with a code. And yes, you guessed it, you can input that code in My Business manager to verify your business.

After claiming, you can add on google map and some photos of your work place so that customers can get real information.
