Update your Business Profile on Google

If you own or manage a business, you can create and edit a free Business Profile for customers to find on Google Maps and Search. To create or claim a Business Profile, sign up for Google My Business.

After you verify a business, you can make changes to your Business Profile wherever it appears, like on Google Search and the Maps mobile app.

You can:

  • Edit profile: Easily update your business information, adjust your hours, or add a menu.
  • Promote: Add photos or updates to stand out on Google.
  • Customers: Connect with your customers by responding to reviews and questions.
Why am I seeing this?

Only verified owners and managers can update and directly edit your Business Profile when it appears on Search and Maps.

The Business Profile is visible to the public and appears in search results when users search for your business. However, only owners and managers of the profile have access to see and perform actions such as creating posts and replying to reviews.

Tip: To see how your profile appears to people who are not owners or managers, use Incognito mode in Google Chrome or Maps.
