google-logoGoogle is the #1 search engine!  You need to have your business listed on Google.  Here are some simple steps about how to list your business.

  • First you will need a Google Account.  If you have one already, you can skip this step.  If you don’t, you need to create one.  A Google account is Free to make.
  • Next, go to Www.Google.Com/Business .  Click on the “Get on Google” Button.
  • You will see a search box in the upper left hand corner of the screen.  Type your business name in.  Your business should not show up, (unless someone else used your business name for a listing).  Fill in your business information such as Name, Address, Phone Number, Type of Business, and specify whether or not you are service oriented or not.  (If you do not operate out of a brick in mortar building, you can select this option and choose a service area you work in based on mileage)
  • You will then confirm the information and select to mail out a postcard.  The post card takes between 1 & 2 weeks to be delivered.  Once you receive it, log back into your Google Account.  Go to your business listing and type in the numerical code from the post card you received in the mail.  (Please note you only have 30 days to type on the code.  Don’t procrastinate)

That’s it!  You created your business listing!  Check back tomorrow for a blog describing what type of information you should include in your Google Listing.  Thanks for reading.
