Google My Business listing for Dealer locations
Our business manufactures goods that are distributed through our dealer network nationwide. The dealerships are not owned by our company. However, is there a way for me to list these locations?
Re: Google My Business listing for Dealer locations
Hi @Jeff R
Typically, no, only the dealership would be eligible for a listing since it's their location and not the manufacturer's.
The following is from the Google My Business guidelines:
If your business sells another business brand’s product(s) or service(s), use only the name of the business, excluding the name of the brand being sold, which cannot have a listing for this location.
- Not Acceptable: "Staples / UPS", "America’s Tire / Firestone"
- Acceptable: "Staples", "America’s Tire"
However, if the business location is an authorized and fully dedicated seller of the branded product or service (sometimes known as a "franchisee"), you may use the underlying brand name when creating the listing.
- Acceptable: "TCC Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer", "U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer"
