Hi,

 

I would like to add the service area map to my website. It is probably right in front of me but I am not seeing it.

Hi @Jennifer S

 

So you want to change your service area on your business page ?

 

And then embed map on your website ?

 

Which of the two, or please can you be more specific in your question.

 

Thanks

Thanks for your reply. The service area map looks perfect on the business page. I would like to add that map to my website. It shows the 5 mile radius that my mobile business covers

I have tried to locate an answer for my question and am not getting it resolved. I would really like the same map that Google My Business created when entering the information for my service area. Is there a way to copy that to my website?

Hey @Jennifer S

 

it's possible to embed the GoogleMaps showing your service area on your website.

There are three main steps necassary:

step 1:

get your business shown up on GMaps showing the service area.

step 2:

Zoom and pane the map as you like to see it later.

 

Then click top left the hamburger menu and select "share and embed" map - selecting the embed option.

You will then get the embed code (its HTML code) shown.

 

Step 3: insert the gotten HTML code into your website.

 

It should look similar as with this sample map of a Service Area Business on a sample website of mine.

Thank you!

I am waiting on the postcard to verify my business. The only way I can see the map is when I am in my Google My Business, Edit Info tab, and the map will come up with the 5 mile radius showing on the edit screen of the address.

Does this mean I need to wait until it is verified and showing on search?

yes

my above three steps are valid only if your business is verified as a
Service Area Business (with hidden address)
