Claiming any listing of your business online verifies that you are the owner of a valid business and authorized to maintain its presence on the web.
You need to determine whether your business already exists in our directory. Don’t be surprised if it does, even if you’ve never created a listing there! Unless your business opened its doors today, chances are, there is some record of its existence on the web. Search in our directory by your business name, phone number or website.
Next, you’ll review any existing information, correct any incorrect information, and provide any new or missing information about your business name, address, phone number, website address, business categories, and other details. This is when accuracy and consistency really count!
Once you’ve filled out your business’s information, you’ll be asked to go through a verification process.
- Via an email in which you’ll be clicking on a verification link
We take about 2-3 business days to complete verification and you will see your listing appear online immediately.
In certain indexes, such as Google Places/Google+ Local, any future changes to core data such as the business name or phone number may trigger the need to re-verify. However, you can typically edit things like business descriptions and photos without any need to go through the verification process again.
