As a local business, it's crucial to have a Google Business Profile (GBP) that accurately reflects your business. One essential aspect of your profile is your service area, which tells potential customers the geographic locations where you offer services. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to add or change your service area on your Google Business Profile.
1. Sign in to your Google Business Profile account
2. Click on the "Info" tab
Once you're signed in, click on the "Info" tab on the left-hand side of your dashboard.
3. Click on the "Edit" button next to the “Service Areas” section
4. Choose and define your service areas
You have two options for selecting your service area: "Within" or "Around." If you choose "Within," you can enter specific cities, postal codes, or other geographic areas where you offer services. If you choose "Around," you can enter the distance you're willing to travel from your business location. Depending on what services your business offers, either of these options could work for you!
5. Save your changes
Once you've selected your service area, click “Done.” You’ve now changed your business’ service areas!
Editing your business’ service area on your Google Business Profile will help customers find your business - and ensure that you get a lot of localized traffic!
Additionally, adding a service area ensures that customers don’t waste time figuring out whether or not your business is in their area. It’s a win-win!
