Step 2: Add your business
Enter your business name. If it does not appear in the drop-down menu, click Add your business to Google. Then select the appropriate category for your business.
Step 3: Enter your location

You may also be asked to position a marker for the location on a map. If your business does not have a location customers can visit, but offers a service or delivery, you can list your service area.
