Claiming your Google My Business account requires you to verify your business. It's not hard however it does require a couple specific steps.
Before you get started, you may want to check out Google's Guidelines and note:
Listings on Google My Business can only be created for businesses that either have a physical location that customers can visit, or that travel to visit customers where they are.
To begin, visit https://www.google.com/business/ and click Start Now to locate or create your business.
Google will then send a verification postcard to your location though some businesses may be able to verify with a phone call. You can see the particulars at https://support.google.com/business/answer/7107242 - we've added their overview video here.
What are the benefits?
Claiming your business ensures your data is correct and helps you appear in more local searches as well as Google Map views.
Just do it! It'll help you get more traffic and more exposure on Google.
Coming Soon: You'll be able to link Locable to your Google My Business account and keep your information current just by updating your Locable account! Keep an eye out for more in the coming months.
