How to Create and Verify Your Google My Business Account

A Google My Business account helps your business be found online. Making one is free and easy to do. Here is how to set up your account and confirm you own your business.

Sign Up for an Account

Go to and click “Manage now.”

Choose to either sign in with your Google account or create a new account.

Enter your business name and address. This helps connect your locations.

Add your website and phone number so customers can contact you.

Select your business category like restaurant, store, or service.

Verify Your Account

To prove you own your business, Google will try to verify your account automatically.
If it can’t, follow these steps:

Choose how you want to verify. The options are by phone, email, or postcard.

If by phone, enter a number you can answer when Google calls.

If by email, make sure to click the verification link Google sends.

If by postcard, enter your full mailing address to receive the code by mail.

Once verified, your information will show up when customers search for your business on Google. Be sure to keep your listing complete and up to date. This helps you connect with new customers every day.
