Hi All,


Is there any advice on how to construct and GMB account to represent an SAB for local search? 


Considering that my client offers a breakdown service in the whole of the UK and has a single physical office address based in London, how should we approach GMB and appearing and competing in the local search pack and maps?


I have reviewed Googles own advice here!topic/map-maker/0-0wplytssg  but still there are articles that i have read that suggest that selecting a service area as the whole of the UK will not necessarily help you rank in the local pack or in maps. I have also read that it is not advised to set up multiple service areas for urban areas.


Whats the guidance here Google? Surely a national SAB should be able to compete with a local SAB in local results?

Google doesn't like SABs covering big areas such as an entire country.

Your client should just create a brand page instead.
