Look Up a Business on Google My Business?

I want to check to see if a client already has a Google My Business listing. The client isn't sure. How do I check that?

 

I know this must be a stupidly basic question, but I'm temporarily stumped.

best thing would be taking a look for the address of the business with
MapMaker and then over there "Edit" => "Select a place"

Any local listings should listed there then.

You can also search for the business at its address.

This doesn't apply for service Area listings with hidden addresses as they
don't appear on MapMaker

Hi @Bill T I know @Helmut Geissler won't mind me adding to his great response :)

 

If the business is a service area business with a 'hidden address' then I find looking via site: plus.google.com 'business name' can help bring up the Google+ page / listing as well.

(Note I had to put a space between the colon and the 'p' otherwise it turns into an emoji but don't but a space when you're doing the search!)
