Hi all,

I would like to know how I can advertise on Google Maps. If I type directly Restaurants in Canary Wharf, I see that some of the listings are ads. My company is currently doing adwords advertising but we are not covering Google Maps. How can we do that?


Many thanks,

Hi Ana,


The basic steps to show ads on Google maps are:

1. Enable location extensions

2. Setup or update your Google My Business listings

3. Use location targeting and bid by location

4. Use keywords that relate to your location and what people are searching for
