Hello, I am trying to get my business on google and I'm having some trouble with this whole thing.

Best Water Damage Repair & Restoration SF

415 604 5754

1450 Sutter St. #323-a1 San Francisco, CA 94109

 

Could you please inform me what I'm not doing correctly. I'm trying to do everything by the book and by google's standards.

Thanks, James H.

Hi @James H

 

What stage are you up to in creating the business page.

 

Have you created it ?

Have you requested verification ?

Hi James

Do you see any error messages when you go to the page via business.google.com/manage? If so, if you can add a screenshot here of those, that would be helpful.

Also have you set your business as a service area business - removed the checkbox next to 'I also serve customers at my location' in the address setting?

I had checked the box previously and have not unchecked it or messed with the settings.

Hey @James H

 

Are you aware the fact somebody (a user "BradLV") is trying since  13th of May via MapMaker  to add  your business listing  via GMaps or MapMaker ("Best Water Damage Repair & Restoration SF") rather then via GoogleMyBusiness as you seem managing it ?

Are you this user "BradLV"?

 

However the doing of "BradLV" seems contra productive

That maybe one of my associates but I doubt it. How can I fix it?

ask all your associates and if you found the one - require to make an undo of his edit as it wasn't agreed with you as the boss.

Hi James

In addition to Helmut's comments, please make sure you uncheck the box next to "I serve customers at my business address" - otherwise you're telling Google that customers can come to your address 24 hours a day, and I don't think that would be correct?
