Got Questions? We have a number of Q & A sections with most frequently asked questions below.
Google My Business (GMB) is a profile that displays on the right side of Google search results when someone searches for your local business or local keywords related to your business. GMB includes things like hours, contact information, services you offer, posts that you generate, your business review status and links to customre reviews, images that you upload to your GMB account, and promotions.
Taking advantage of your Google My Business profile is the best way to increase your local visibility on Google, and we’ll show you exactly what to do.
Google My Business Verification is a process for claiming your business account. Google wants to know if you truly own the business you are listing in your GMB account. Verification for most businesses includes requesting a post card from Google that contains a 6 digit code. Once you receive the code, you enter it into a designated entry form. After you enter the verifiction, you truly “own” your GMB listing.
Creating a website inside your Google My Business is optional. Your official GMB website appears when people locate your business listing on Google Search and Maps. If your business has an existing website you can choose that site, what we refer to as your “main site”, as your GMB listing website. The site you select gives site visitors and potential customers the opportunity to view your business servcies or products that you offer. We recommend you do create a strong GMB website inside your GMB account and use this to promote your main website.
A Google My Business post is a short container of content that provides an opportunity for you to publish your services, products, special offerings, and events directly to Google Search and Maps. By creating posts, you can place your promitional text, photos, or videos into your Google listing that will be displayed to prospective customers when they find your Google My Business.
Google encourages you to upload images that show your business location, your staff members, interactions with customers, and on the job photos and videos. Google will display your images and videos to help people find your business across all Google search types, including in organic search and Google Maps. Google has very broad rules on the use of images and videos, however, they must be related to your business offerings. By uploading images that you provide, we can give your Google My Business listing a big boost in the Google listings.

Google does not make it easy to create a Google My Business account without an address. We recommend that you at, bare minimum, have an address at a real location within your service area. A “real location” for Google is a business location like a restaurant or physician, a home, an apartment, or an industrial building. Google My Business will not verify use of a postal office box number, a mail box facility, or a shared office workspace.

The Google “3 Pack” is a term used in the Internet marketing industry that really means the “top 3 listings in the Google Maps Listings.” The answer to your question about maps listings is complex because the GMB visibility is very dependent upon your business actions. In order to “rank” in the top 3 spots on the GMB Maps listings you must have a strong main website, business activity demonstrated by images, GMB posts, and positive Reviews. We provide services to help boost your visibility in the Google Maps listings, aka the Google 3 Pack, in our GMB Visibility packages.
