The information you provide about your business plays a critical role in ensuring that business information on Google is accurate and up-to-date.

Edit your business information

To edit your business information on Google:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business and choose the listing you’d like to manage. (If you haven’t already added and verified your business, you’ll need to do so before your edits can appear on Google. Follow these steps to get started.)
  2. Click Info at the top of the page.
  3. Click the section that you want to change, then enter the new information in the box that appears. Click the X next to the section you’d like to delete to remove it.
    • It may take up to 60 days to delete information you’ve previously added. Information that is also publicly available or from other sources may not be removed.
    • Business descriptions (editorial summaries or keywords from the web that appear next to your business) are not editable. Learn more
  4. Click Done editing.

Closed or moved business

Follow these steps to mark your business as permanently closed or moved without deleting your account.

If you see something wrong with a business you don’t own or manage, you can report it using Google Maps.

Types of edits

Business Name

Represent your business exactly as it appears in the offline world. Changing your business name between when you request a verification postcard and when you enter the verification code will reset the verification process. For more information, see the Google My Business quality guidelines.


Enter the complete and exact address for your business location. Read our address entry guidelines for more recommendations.

Changing your address between when you request a verification postcard and when you enter the verification code will reset the verification process. Also note that once you set your listing's country, you won't be able to change it in the future.

Contact info

Update the phone number and website URL for your business in this section.


Enter the one category that best represents your business. All locations of a business must share one Primary Category. Choose a category that is as specific as possible, but representative of your main business. If you enter several categories, the category entered in the first field will be selected as your primary category.

You may also choose up to nine more additional categories. If you can't find a category for your business, choose one that is more general.

  • Don't use categories solely as keywords or to describe attributes of your business.
  • Don't use categories that pertain to other businesses that are nearby or related, such as a business physically contained within your business or an entity that contains your business.

Check our guidelines for more information on using categories. You can also see common categories.


Add the hours that your business is open. These are your regular customer-facing hours of operation for a typical week. For days when you have unusual hours, like holidays or special events, set special hoursLearn more about hours guidelines

To set opening hours:

  1. Make sure that you've followed the steps above to select the location whose hours you want to set.
  2. Select a day of the week from the first drop-down menu.
  3. Choose what time your business opens on that day from the options in the second box.
  4. In the third box, select when your business closes for that day.
  5. To add another day of the week, click Add Hours and repeat the process.
  6. Once you’re done, click Save.

You can delete any hours you’ve added by clicking the X next to the line entry.

Breaks in business hours

Create two entries for the same day with different times to indicate that your business hours include a break. For example, say your business is open from 9am–2pm on Saturdays, closed from 2pm–5pm, then open again from 5pm–10pm. To show this for your business, you’d enter the first open time by choosing Saturday, 9:00am, and 2:00pm. Then, you’d click Add hours and choose Saturday again, but this time enter 5:00pm and 10:00pm as the opening hours.

24-hour businesses

Indicate that you’re open 24 hours on a given day by entering 12:00am–12:00am. To indicate that you’re open every day at all times, select all days of the week and enter 12:00am–12:00am.

Special hours

To change your hours for holidays or other temporary periods, set special hours.
