Learn about prompts and notifications for potential business owners

If Google predicts that you might be the owner or manager of a business, a prompt will appear in the Business Profile on Search or Maps. The prompt will ask if you own or manage a business.

How prompts work

Google uses various signals from the user’s online activity to decide whether to display the prompt. The signals help Google predict whether someone may be a business owner or manager, or if they're otherwise affiliated with a particular unclaimed business.

 Important: Currently, Business Personalization settings on a Google Account don’t affect this experience.
