You may not be sure whether you already have a Google My Business listing for your business. This guide will help you to find out.
If you're already sure that you don't have a listing and want to create one now, you can learn how to create a Google My Business listing instead.
To see the business listings your already have at Google, go to the Google My Business dashboard.
If you only have one business listing, you'll see your business name in the top left of the page and other info about your listing (the dashboard itself) on the right.
If you have several business listings associated with your Google account, you may instead see a list of locations that you manage (sometimes grouped into 'location groups').
If your business is shown or listed here, you're ready to connect to Chalkboard using the Google account that you're already logged into. It's easy to do, follow our guide to connecting Chalkboard to Google.
If you don't see your business, or if you're asked to create or claim a business listing instead of seeing your business already there waiting, it could be one of two reasons:
To see if Google already has a listing for your business associated with another account, head over to business.google.com/create.
Once you’re signed in, you’ll see a page prompting you for your business name.
Type the name that your customers would know you as. You’ll see existing business listings with similar names, and/or an option to create a new business listing.
Do you see your business listed with an address?
You will always see an option to create a new business listing, so ignore that for now.
If you see your business in the list, and after selecting it see a page saying “This listing has already been claimed”, we now know that you already have a listing but linked to a different Google account.
You will need to either locate the Google account that you signed up with (Google’s account recovery may help), or request access from another account (for example, if another person, employee, or previous business owner claimed the listing before now).
Google has a guide to transferring ownership of a listing that may help.
When you own the listing and see the listing on the Google My Business dashboard, you can continue to connect Google and Chalkboard. You'll need to make sure you choose the correct Google account when you try to connect again.
