Business address in UK but trade in USA, will this negatively effect SEO on google.com?

Our business office is in the UK but we sell our products in the USA. We have a .com website and have registered it as a United States website. However, I have just followed the process of "Google My Business", as we have no office in the US I had to state the business address as UK. I am concerned google will assume our business is UK based and therefore have a negative impact on our google.com rankings in America.

Does anyone know for certain whether my fear is justified or the fact I have previously stated the website is United States based will overcome the perceived problem?

Hey @Adrian G

 

since GoogleMyBusiness is not about products a business sells but about the businesss and where it is facing their customers I would guess your business isn't eligible for a local page.

Perhaps you should consider creating  a brand page instead of a local page for the UK
