Updated: Jan 16
Each time you create a local business listing, whether at Google or Facebook you will be filling out a form with a specific set of fields that helps the platform as well as the user understand and know about your business more.
In this article we have listed some important components of a local business listing that one should take care of while listing his/her business on any platform.
1. Business name/title
Always use your real-world business name. Be sure the way you format your name matches the sign on your business. Do not add additional keywords or geographic terms.
Always list your real-world business address, without any kind of additions or alterations. Virtual office addresses are not considered real-world addresses.
3. Phone number
Give local area code phone numbers. This is important for businesses like hotels: they’re local. Make sure your website and all of your citations consistently use this number.
4. Website URL
Google makes sure that your listed website URL goes directly to a page owned by your business. Don't redirect to a third party site.
