    An Introduction to Google 411 - Listing Questions


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    How do I get myself listed in the Goog 411 listings? How do I get my listing information changed if I find that it is not correct?

    If you happen to own or manage a local business, then you should check your listings to be sure that they are accurate. After all, you don’t want to lose out on business because of an inaccurate listing or the lack of a listing in the system.

    Luckily for you, getting your listing added or changed is a very simple thing to do if you know how Goog 411 gets its listing information. Goog 411 gets its information from the listings that you find on Google Maps. If your business has an accurate listing within the Google Maps system, then you can be sure that your Goog 411 information is accurate.

    So, how do I change or add a Google map listing then?

    Step One: Make a Google account. You can do this by visiting any of the Google sites, except for the main search engine. The easiest one to use is probably the Gmail site. On the main Gmail site choose the “sign up” button and follow all of the instructions to set up the account.

    Step Two: Use your account to sign in to the Google Local Business Center. Once you do this you can take a look around if you like, and then we can get down to business. Just be sure that you do not sign out.

    Step Three: Make your way back to the Google Maps site. The easiest way to do this is by clicking on the Google Maps icon in the local business center site.

    Step Four: Search for your listing in the system. This can seem contrary if you knew that you do not have one, but just bear with me for a while longer.

    If your listing is new, do the following:

    Step Five: Click on “Add a place to the map.” You will see a bubble appear on the map to the right.

    Step Six: Click on “Continue to add a location." A new screen will appear in the bubble. Input the name and address then click on next.

    Step Seven: Add the rest of the needed information. Be sure to put in the phone number. Now click on “save.” You may be asked to verify your information. If you are asked to verify, just follow the instructions.

    If your listing is in need of an edit, from step four above, proceed as follows:

    Step Five: Find your listing. When you do, look for the words “more info.” When you do this, your information bubble will expand.

    Step Six: Find the word “add or edit your business” and click on it. Now you can alter and save your information.

    It is worth mentioning that as long as your listing remains unverified, anyone who wants to edit your information can do so freely and without penalty. They do it in just the same way that we corrected the information.

    It is worth taking the time to verify if you can. That way you can be sure that your information stays accurate. If you can not verify, then you should check the listing at least quarterly to be sure it has not been altered. Verification is really a simple thing to do, so don’t skip it.
