Hi, In this article I’m going to tell you how we can register our own business, place, or location in Google Maps. As Google has announced that they are deprecating Google Map Maker in March 2017. Moreover, the new official way to add place into your google maps is easier than before. The “add a place” feature can be used from both desktops and mobile apps to add places to google maps. Furthermore, Google encourages users to claim their business on google maps location. So that Google can gather more data in their system.
So to start adding your place into google maps, you will go to Google Maps Page from either your mobile or direct https://www.google.com/maps.
After visiting the google maps site. Click on Menu at the top-left search bar, it will open up the main site panel of Google Maps. Click on “Add a Missing Place“.
The “Add a Missing Place” will prompt you to add a place with a draggable marker on the map to pinpoint your business location on the map. Furthermore, in the form, you can add your Place Name, Street Address, Category Type (which can be a place of business, building, or road), Phone Number, Website URL, and the Business Hours of your location. Once you have filled in all the details, click “Claim This Business” to verify that you are the authority of this business/location.
Next, click the “Submit” button, your request will be sent to Google. Furthermore, you will get a notification of the status of the location.
Once the business location is verified, it will appear on Google search. Along with all the details that were submitted in the “Add a Missing Place” form.
