How to convert my Google Local business page to Company page like Microsoft, Google, Facebook.

Long time ago we have registered my Company on google as Local Business. Today i have realized what i have done. Our business is not Local business Its Company like Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, Sketchup

 

I do not want when someone search my company, google shows them as a local business with Hours, Reviews, Address.

 

I want when someone search my company, google have to show them profile like Microsoft , Google, IBM, Autodesk with Owner Name, Founder Name, etc.

Hi @Harshad G

 

You cannot convert a business page to anything else.

 

The knowledge graph for companies is extracted from information found on the web together with structured data found on the website : https://schema.org/Organization

 

To remove your business page:

 

Log into account >> https://business.google.com/manage/

 

Select >> Manage Location

 

Info Tab >> Remove

Then check Maps to see if it still appears. If so, you will need to now contact business support and ask them to remove the business as it is only online and should not have a business listing.

 

Contact Business Support

OR - Go to Dashboard >> Manage Location

Top Right ( Hamburger Menu ) >> Support

Select Support >> Help Menu Pops Up

Scroll Down to Email
