Question: What if your business doesn’t have a physical address in the city your business is centered around? For instance, I run PasoRobles.com from my home in another town but I have a Paso Robles P.O. Box address. How would I go about getting a Google local listing?
Answer: In the webinar, this is what we discussed on setting your local service area. Simply go to your listing and edit it on Google Places. Select Yes, this business serves customers at their locations to activate the service area feature. Then select how many miles you are willing to travel.
If you work from home, you can also suppress your address from being shown in your listings.
