Home address as business address

Hi everyone :)

 

I was wondering if anyone could advise me on what the implications are of having your home address as your business address when it comes to Google?

 

Are there any implications we should be aware of?

 

Are you able to enter the address when signing up but have the address set to private and still able to appear in Google Local?

 

Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated :)

 

Thank you!!

 

Laura

believe your best choice would be creating a service area business if you don't serve customers at your home address.

Doing it this way your address can hidden to the public - your business will appear on Google showing the name and phoen and website and the service area - but no address then.

I was wondering the same thing as I do not really wish for my home address to be out in the view of others however my business is in my home so in seeking info I came across your request for info. I wish there was a reply as it seems all home address questions are without replies and it being so prevalent one would think we could find some of them replied to.
