Can You Do a Google My Business Listing for an Online Business?
Like many of us, I no longer have an office or see clients in person. I also moved to another state as a result I now have two states to market to.
I took a journey to figure things out. First, I set up a Cathy Hanville, LCSW PA page. I was asked the areas served and I put in some local areas because for online work I can see someone throughout PA. Google’s policy is that if you can enter a Service Area then you can have a listing without a specific address.
Google did require a NON-PO Box address to send me a verification code to enter.
However, I later realized I could edit my existing profile by clearing the address by going to Info on the left and then hitting clear this address on the bottom of the page as shown below.
I then edited the service areas. I put in areas for both PA and CA. As you can see, I put in both states and added a few more local areas.
As I have said before, having a Google My Business Listing is one of the best things you can do for your Search Optimization and your overall marketing plan.
