How to Link Google My Business Page with website locations

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi, we have a locator on the website with about 68 locations.  These locations have a dynamic address. When you click on the address it takes you to Google maps and shows you the street address of that location. Is there a way to link the website to the company's My Business Google account so that it shows the branded my business page and map rather than just the street address map?

 

Thanks,

 

Lois

Hi @Lois E

 

I think I understand what you're asking. This might not be exactly what you had in mind but might be more desirable than what you have in place now if you're currently just linking to a map of the location's address.

 

Using Googleplex as an example here, you could link to each business location this way:
https://goo.gl/maps/7vqd3EB1qd32

 

So the "directions" link on the location's page of your website could link to that instead of just the street address map.

 

In addition to that, or as an alternative, you could embed an interactive map for each location that looks like this (this is just a screen capture of the interactive map):

 

googleplex.PNG

 

And you can see that within the map it has "directions" and "view larger map" that people could utilize to get directions to the business location.

 

Here's an article on how to embed maps and share locations: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/144361

 

Is this close to what you had in mind?

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually looking for a way to automatically
link my location addresses to the Google My Business listing (like the
example for Googleplex) instead of the Google street address. At the
moment they all link to the street address. I know that I can go through
each location and change the link manually, but I am wondering if there is
an add-on that will link to our My Business brand account and automatically
poplulate the correct link for each location.

 Hi @Lois E

 

Sorry, I don't know of any way to automate that. Sounds like a good task for someone that owes you a favor! Or, if you do it yourself, it could be a good opportunity to review all of the listings as you go to make sure their info is correct and to see if there are any reviews the need to be responded too, etc.

No, unfortunately not. I fear it's going to be a manual process.

Just wondering if Google has solved this since this issue was posted. We have 160+ locations and no one owes me that big a favor to do this manually! I can download a list of our locations from Google My Business; can't Google include the link to our business listing in this export? I'm sure this is a common question since everyone with multiple locations will have a locator on their website and wouldn't want it to just link to their address.

You both have a great idea. I'd like to include this functionality in my company's service. Would either or both of you want to be a test client? Of course, no charge. If it works you get a download of exactly what you are looking to achieve. You can email me at hcoleman@localclarity.com if interested.
