How to Claim Your Business on Google Places

WP Greet Box iconHey! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic.

Among other online resources, Google Places is a great way to increase your businesses exposure and increase the amount of clientele that you are attracting. Not only will Google Places place you on the map as far as local businesses go, but it will also place you in to various social networking programs that pull from Google Places business listings!

Google Places is an online service that is run through Google.com and can be located at Google.com/places. The purpose of Google Places is to provide an online directory of business listings that provide clients with pertinent information on local businesses including contact information, location and services offered. It is important to claim your business on Google Places in order to ensure that any existing information listed for your business is current and that potential clients are not being misled by incorrect information.


How To Claim a Business on Google Places

1. Go to Google.com/places
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page where it says “Places for Business”
3. Sign in with your G-mail/Google log in information
4. Click the “List your business” button
5. Fill in the phone number and country of your business and click the “find business information” button.

If a business listing already exists with the information that you have provided, you will be given the chance to claim that listing and edit pertinent information; however, if no listing currently exists you will be given the opportunity to add your business listing to Google Places!

Parting Shots

Adding your business to Google Places is a great way to take advantage of online business directories, in a time where phone books are few and far between, services like Google Places are becoming the new method of being spotted!

Your Turn

Spill the beans, do you currently have your Google Places page for your business claimed or have you failed to claim your Google Places page? Leave a comment, let’s hear it.

Excellent information Chris.  How can you get a bigger coverage area?  I come up in Cleveland, but not in the surrounding areas?  Does anyone know what % of people use the places, over the organic listing?

Yes you can! Google will send out a verification card to that address you listed with a code you'll have to enter. We try to center ourselves within a zone and then set the radius.

The TRICK to making your place page come up in surroundng areas is to have these areas you serve added at the footer (bottom) of every page on your website!
IOW, Polish Roof Cleaning of Cleveland serves Astabula,Shaker Heights,,The Flats, and all of Cuyhoga County Ohio.
Then, on your place page description, add the same info! Got to be careful though to not list EVERY single area and hamlet you service, or you will dilute keyword density and mess yourself up for the roof cleaning Cleveland main search!

You do also know that once your profile is complete, you can add "status updates" and coupons to your "place". :)
