How to claim online business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm looking to claim my business, logo, and information on google search. I'm a registered LLC but I'm based out of my house and would not like to have my personal information linked to my company's google search. I would like to have the address or pin dropped in Pittsburgh (my demographic). I saw another company that had this but I wasn't sure how I can claim it without an address. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello @Zachary D

 

Are you aware the fact about online businesses not eligible for GoogleMyBusinesses (local)?

 

Please check out their Guidelines for representing your business on Google

 

You need to make in-person contact  to your customers.

In case oyu have such  in-person contact in a restricted Service Area around your home, check out

@Helmut Geissler Thank you for the reply. I didn't see anything about that on the guidelines, I'll give it another read. I'm in the clothing/screen printing industry where I do have products and customers, but the heart of my operation is sold online and the company address is registered with my home address.

the linked guidelines require you have in-person conact to your customers - excluding this way any kind of pure online businesses.
