How To Create A Google+ Local Page

Kevin Chow -

Create a local Google+ page

Local Google+ pages are unique from other categories of pages because they have features that allow customers to easily connect with that business’s physical location. For example, local pages include a map of the business’s location and feature its address, phone number, and hours of operation. Local pages also share the functionality of other Google+ pages -- you can create and manage circles, start and join hangouts, and share content like posts and photos.

To make a local page for your business:

  1. Sign in to Google+ new window (you’ll have to create a Google+ profile if you don’t already have one).
  2. Click Pages under More on the left.
  3. Click the Create a new page button in the upper right.
  4. Select the Local Business or Place category.
  5. Type in your business’s phone number and click Locate. Make sure that the phone number you use is a business line and not a personal or cell phone number.
  6. If you see your business listed, click on your business’s name. You’ll be able to edit the address later if anything is incorrect. If the name of your business doesn’t appear, click Add your business to Google or Look up a different number to try again.
  7. Enter or edit basic information about your business, including business name, phone number, and address. If Google already has information about your business, you’ll be asked to confirm it. You can also edit any information that’s incorrect.
  8. Add categories to your local page to help users better understand what your business does. In the Category box, select the main category that best describes your business.
  9. Select an age requirement that’s appropriate for your business.
  10. Click Create, and you’re done! Now you can visit your page and add even more details about your business, like hours, your website, and more contact information.
