So, I am trying to add my business to Google+ My Business and it keeps telling me that I need to purchase Google for Work first. Am I crazy? Is Google charging to be found on Maps and for Local now?

Hi Eamonn,

Have you tried using this link? What is your business name?

https://business.google.com/add?service=plus&gmbsrc=us-en-z-z-z-gmb-s-z-l~mhp-rs3_ros_top-u&ppsrc=GM...

Google for Work is a paid service and Google's Enterprise system for company email, apps, calendar and more. You should not have to sign up in order to add your free business listing.

No matter what I did, I got in this loop on Google that said that I had to have a Google for Work gmail to login. Now, out of the blue, it let's me create my business. Several people in our business saw these screens. I think there is a glitch on Google's website or something. Thanks for your help.
