Google Places – where your customers can find you

Have you ever used or Google Maps to find a coffee shop, restaurant, theatre…?  Your customers can also find you on Google; all you have to do is to add a FREE listing of your business to Google Places.

Add your business to Google Places is very easy; just sign up now.


Once you sign up, then you can add a new business. 

You need to enter your contact information; and you have the option to specify the nature of your business, services area, operation hours, and payment options or even include photos of your products or your storefront.

If you are going to hold a special sale event for 5-7 pm tonight or issue a coupon for this coming Saturday, you can post the news to your Place Page directly from your Local Business Center dashboard. Once it is posted, it will go live on your Place Page in just a few minutes. 



To keep track of how your business listing is performing, Google offers a personalized dashboard within Google Places that includes data about how many times people have found your business on Google, what keywords they used to find it and even what areas people traveled from to visit your business. With the dashboard, you can see how your use of any of these new features affects interest in your business and make more informed decisions about how to be found on Google and interact with your customers.

Add your business to Google Places and let more customers find you now.
