Cannot Find the PlaceID for my Business

Hi -- I recently got my business listed on Google and need to access a PlaceID. It isn't showing up in the drop-down field. I initially set up as a service-area business HOWEVER I changed it upon verification to show on Google Maps. Service area just wasn't going to work for me.


My business shows up when I type the name in:,-71.0500187,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m...


However, it doesn't show up by merely zooming in on the map or if I type in Milton MA Photographers, etc. Not a huge deal at the moment as I know I'm new, but I still would like to get a PlaceID so I can start gathering reviews to help my cause.

hi ian,

Are you referring to the PlaceID that can be found by searching on this page?


or are you referring to a Place Label?
If you are referring to a Place Label, it is Google Local algorithms that choose what business listings are shown as Place Labels and it is not possible for business owners to request inclusion of the business listing as a Place Label.
