Edit Profile From Dashboard
Edit Profile Sections
In this section of the chapter we’re exploring each field option within the “edit profile” section of your Google Business Profile.
About Your Business
Choose a primary category that describes your business. It’s better to be as specific as you can.
Google will present categories to you as you start typing. Select a category from the dropdown list. For example, choose “Hair Salon” instead of “Salon”. If your ideal category isn’t available, choose a more general category that still accurately describes your business.
Is it possible to create your own category?
No. You can’t create your own category.
Enter a complete description of your business that includes primary and secondary search terms for which you would like your business to be found when someone is searching Google. There is a 750 character limit.
Enter the opening date of your business.
Enter your business phone number.
Enter your business website URL.
Location and Areas
Enter your business address. This address should be exactly the same as it appears on your website and in other directories.
Address consistency is crucial, learn more about having a consistent Name, Address and Phone Number (NAP) by clicking here.
Google gives you the option of showing your business address or not. If your business depends upon customers visiting your business, make sure you toggle to select “Show business address to customers”.
By default, Google will suggest service areas near the business location you enter. You can add additional service areas by typing them into the “search area” field.
