Types of edits

Business Name

Address

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.

Phone

Enter the phone number for your business.

Website

Enter the website URL for your business. Make sure that:

Category

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.

Hours

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 business hours:

  1. Make sure that you've followed the steps above to select the location whose hours you want to set.

Breaks in business hours

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, but this time enter 5:00pm and 10:00pm.

24-hour businesses

Indicate that you’re open 24 hours on a given day by clicking Opens at next to the day you want to set hours for, then selecting 24 hours from the dropdown menu that appears.
