hi there


I'm looking at registering and signing up for the Google My Business so that i come up in searches in the local area for the service i'm providing.


However, im working from home and dont really want my full address listed for the world to see (there are a few crazy people out there)


Apart from setting up a virtual office, what options do i have?


My best friend owns a Psychologist practice up the road and she said i can use her address. Can i do that with her permission?

create a service area business with  hiddeen address

Follow this HC article:


Note: to hide the address you have to uncheck the little box below the service area specification: "I also serve customers ar my business address"
