How To Claim Your Google My Business, Bing Places & Yahoo Profiles
Register Your Business With Google
Claiming your Google My Business listing is the first step to having your company gain clients from the internet.
To do this, you’ll simply have to submit your a few business details for your Google My Business listing, then Google will require you to verify your location with a postcard.
Don’t worry, if you work from home and you don’t want prospective clients (or everyone else for that matter), trying to look through your windows on Google maps, you’ll have the option to set-up a service area rather than a service location.
Register Your Business With Bing Places
Claiming your Bing Places profile is basically the same process as Google My Business A few details, postcard verification and your good to go.
Claim Your Business Listing With Yahoo
Claiming your profile with Yahoo doesn’t require a postcard, but they make it tough to find where to claim your free listing, which is now managed by Yext. I’ve included the steps below with screenshots.
