How to create a Google Business listing for your restaurant:
- Creating a profile requires you to have a Google Account.
- Once you have an account, go to the Google Business Website and sign in with your Google account.
- First you'll need to search for your business. If it's already listed, you'll see a message saying, "Your business is already claimed." Click "Manage now" to start managing your listing.
- If your business isn't listed, click "Add a business" and follow the instructions.
- You'll be asked to provide basic information about your business, such as the company name, address, and phone number and of course, your website.
- You'll also be asked to select a category for your business. This is important as the right business category will help ensure that people find your business when searching for restaurants in your area.
- Once you've entered all the required information, click "Submit."
- Google will then send you a verification code, either in the mail or by email.
- Once you receive the code, enter it into your Google Business account to verify your business.
Once your business is verified, you can add more information to your listing, such as photos, links to your menus, and opening hours.
You can also respond to reviews and answer questions from potential customers.
