Google's Local Business Centre

Googles Local Business Centre
Control the way your business listing appears on Google Maps.

It's simple: the Local Business Centre gives you the most control over the way your business listing appears in Google Maps.

Since more people search for businesses online than anywhere else, it's important to make sure your business listing can be easily found on google.com and Google Maps. When you submit and verify information through the Local Business Centre, you provide the most authoritative information for your business listing.

How it Works 

Each business listing in Google Maps is, in fact, a giant “cluster” of information that we get from a few different places such as Yellow Pages.

However, the basic information that you submit through the Local Business Centre is the information that we trust the most. This means that it will appear instead of any basic information that we get from anywhere else. To make sure the basic information you submit is accurate, we'll ask you to verify it first by contacting you at your business address or phone number.

You can add other information to your listing too — such as a description of your business, for example, as well as photos, reviews, or information about hours and parking costs — that will also appear above similar information from other providers.
