Double-check your business information

No matter what you see, double-check that your business information is correct. It’s crucial that when you verify your business information—as we’ll see in a moment—everything is ready to appear live to customers across Google.

If any of your information is incorrect:

  1. Click Verify later.
  2. If you manage more than one location, click Manage location for the location you’d like to edit.
  3. Click Info at the top of the page.
  4. Click the section you’d like to change and enter your business information.
  5. When you’ve finished editing all of your business information, click Done editing at the bottom of the page.

Now that you’ve either claimed or created your listing, it’s time to verify your business. Once you verify, your business information will be eligible to appear across Google.
