Business Worldwide - how do I set the location so it shows correctly on Maps?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a consultancy business located in the UK. We do business worldwide.

I have it set as a "Service-area business" on the Company Google Address page. I added the locations United Kingdom, European Union and United States but that give a red triangle across the world!

Adding 'World' to the 'Region, city or postcode field simply adds 'New York' to the list of locations!

 

How do I fix the entry so it reflects the fact that we operate Worldwide, or at least in the United Kingdom, European Union and United States but shows correctly on maps?

There is nothings to fix as you very unlikely will face customers worldwide in person at your specified business hours.

This type of business is not intented to get supported with and by  GoogleMyBusiness.

Thanks Helmut.

 

The Google map entry for my business looks stupid even though I have said Yes to "I deliver goods and services to my customers at their location".

 

So would you suggest I remove the company entry on "GoogleMyBusiness" and just have a company Google+ page?
