Is it possible to get listed in Google Places without showing our Business Address? Because we are just selling via online and worldwide target market. Please help.


Answer: I am afraid that online only businesses do not qualify for a business listing on Google My Business. Businesses must provide services and/or goods to customers in person to qualify for a Local business listing.


To add to the above: Google does allow service-area businesses--business that serve customers at their locations--should have one page for the central office or location and designate a service area from that point. If you wish to display your complete business address while setting your service area(s), your business location should be staffed and able to receive customers during its stated hours. Google will determine how best to display your business address based on your business information as well as information from other sources. Learn more about service-area businesses.
