How to hide my address when filling Google my Business Form

Hi

 

I run a home business wherein we provide marketing services to clients at their address. Hence I do not want to show my address in search results.

 

I read an answer by Google which said

  1. Sign in to Google My Business and choose the listing you’d like to manage.
  2. Click Info at the top of the page.
  3. Click the Address section.
  4. In the window that appears, select the box next to "I deliver goods and services to my customers at their locations."
  5. Enter your service area information. You can set your service area based on the zip codes or cities that you serve, or on a given area around your location.
    • Select the box next to “I serve customers at my business address” if you want your complete address to appear on Google and your business location is staffed and able to receive customers during its stated hours. 
  6. Click Save.

 

Now my issue is that the minute I choose listing type, opens up a form with the map in the background, asking me to fill in my business details along with the exact address.

 

Now in this I see no "Info" button that I can click on and move with the suggested procedure.

 

 

Can anyone help?

Hi @Brand C, I am not clear on what you are trying to accomplish. Do you already have a GMB listing and are trying to claim it? 

 

Or are you trying to create a new listing? 

 

Can you share the business details? 

 

Thanks

The person doesn't want to show their address, that was the issue. Do you know how to help with this?

Yeah, clearly and I want to know the same thing because I'm afraid if I remove my address it's going to mess up my listing

I have the same problem.I run an online nonprofit out of my house. I do not WANT a GMB account, but it seems like I must have it in order to give Admin Access to employees for my Adwords account.

 

How do I keep my house location private and still give employees admin access?
