The first step in improving your ranking on Google search and Google maps is to claim and update your business information. You will find and manage your account here: Google My Business.
Once you've claimed your business, enter complete business information so users know what you do, where you are and when they can visit. Your page is your digital storefront on Google so make it attractive and inviting.
Step #2 Verify your business. This is as simple as requesting a verification code from Google - either via the phone number Google has on file for your business or from a postcard mailed to your business address.
Step #3 Add owners or managers as authorized users. Levels of access can be managed through your Google My Business account. We recommend assigning on-going responsibility for various tasks (updating photos, responding to comments, etc.) to a specific manager.
Updating and verifying your Google account is the initial step in improving your local ranking. Keeping this information up to date with fresh photos, current phone numbers and addresses, new locations, etc. is important.
