Add My Business to Google My Business Profile

To add your business to Google My Business, follow these steps:


  1. Visit the Google My Business website: Go to https://www.google.com/business/ and sign in using your Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, you’ll need to create one.
  2. Click on “Manage now” or “Start now”: You’ll see a button that prompts you to manage or start setting up your business profile.
  3. Enter your business name: Type in the name of your business. If you’re prompted with suggestions, select the correct one. If your business doesn’t appear, choose “Add your business to Google.”
  4. Select the business category: Choose the category that best represents your business. This helps Google understand what your business is about and how to categorize it.
  5. Add your business location: Provide your business address. If your business operates from a physical location that customers can visit, enter the address. If your business doesn’t have a physical storefront, you can still set up a service-area business where you serve customers at their location.
  6. Specify your service area (if applicable): If you selected a service-area business, you’ll have the option to specify the geographic area you serve. You can enter regions, cities, or ZIP codes.
  7. Add contact details: Enter your phone number and website URL. These details will be displayed on your business profile, allowing customers to contact you.
  8. Verify your business: Google will ask you to verify your business to ensure you are the authorized representative. The verification process typically involves receiving a postcard with a verification code at your business address. Follow the instructions provided to complete the verification.
  9. Optimize your business profile: Once your business is verified, you can enhance your profile by adding photos, business hours, a description, and other relevant information. This helps make your profile more attractive and informative to potential customers.
  10. Manage and update your business profile: Regularly check your Google My Business dashboard to monitor and respond to customer reviews, update business information, and take advantage of additional features offered by Google My Business.


By following these steps, you’ll be able to add your business to Google My Business and start leveraging the platform to increase your online visibility and attract more customers.
