How to claim a Google Business Profile
You need to have access to a Google Business Profile to leverage Locl, and the listings need to be published.
Claiming a business on Google Business Profile and publishing a listing are important steps to enhance your online presence and attract more customers. Here’s a short guide on how to do it:
How to Claim a Business on Google Business Profile:
- Search for Your Business: Go to [Google Business Profile](https://www.google.com/business/) and search for your business name.
- Select Your Business: If it appears in the search results, click on it. If not, you can add it by clicking on “Add your business to Google.”
- Verify Your Business: Google needs to confirm you’re the rightful owner. You’ll often do this by receiving a postcard at the business address with a verification code. Alternatively, some businesses can verify via phone, email, or Google Search Console.
- Enter Verification Code: Once you receive your code, enter it in your Google Business Profile to complete the verification process.
