Trouble getting started with Google my Business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I deliver goods and services to my customers at their location. I have set up a google+ account, but I cannot set up a Google my Business account because my address is not being accepted. 

 

I followed these instructions to set up my account. I chose "Service Area", but after I fill out the form with my residential address, I selected "Yes" to "I deliver goods and services to my customers at their location",   but still getting an error that says: "Enter an address and marker that specify the same place".  -- See screen shot below.

Does anyone know why this is happening and where do I find directions to solve this issue? 

Thank you!

GMaps knows oyur address as 

"151 Cottage St Boston, MA 02128"

 

YOu specified instead "151 Cottage St E. Boston, MA 02128".

Not sure this matters or not.

Try using "151 Cottage St Boston, MA 02128"

Hi Helmut,

 

I just set up google my business, when I search the name of business it comes up fine. However I am having trouble trying to find how to add tagwords so I show up for a broad range of services in free search.

 

Can you advise please,

 

Thanks

JP
