If your business is already established, it may already be on Google Maps. Type your brand name into Google and have a look. If you do find your business there, there should be a "claim" button. Click it, and follow the instructions. Google will send a verification code through the post to validate that you are in fact the business in question.

If you can't find your business...

Adding your website onto Google maps is very simple.

  1. Head over to https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/business/
  2. Click "Manage Now"
  3. Sign in to your Google account, or create one. 
  4. Find your business on the map provided.
  5. Enter your businesses details
  6. Wait for Google to send you a verification number through the post
  7. When it is received, go back into your Google my Business account, and finish the verification.

All done.

Good advice?

Google maps is a great way of gaining local traffic. Locally yes it will help for your product / service within your local area. Personally I would also look at adding schema to your site for your business address. 

https://schema.org/LocalBusiness

We have seen clear evidence that using schema can help google understand your business and boost your positions. For schema localbusiness though only put it on your about page or contact us page. There is no need to repeat it on multiple pages. That will not help

Good advice?
