Hi there,

     I just recently opened a new small business in a VERY small town in Maine. I had a customer come in and tell me that she could not get my shop to come up in a Google search. I didn't even realize that this was something that I actually had to set up myself Smiley Happy. Is there someone that could give me guidance on how to get it so that I could get this done so that people can find me and my store?? Thanks so much!
