How to Get Your Place Page URL in Google Maps

by on January 28, 2010 · 5 comments

Last year Google introduced Place Page, which is an expanded profile for your small business in the Google Maps search results.

The nice thing about this profile, is that it has its own URL that you can copy and share. A lot of business owners ask me how to get the link to their Google Maps Profile – and now there is an easy way to do it.

Here are the steps to get the URL to the maps listing for your business:

Step 1.

Search for your maps result in Google:
Google Search with local intent

Step 2.

Click through to your Places Page from the Maps Listings
Google Maps Lucky 7 Pack

Step 3.

Scroll to the top of your page and click the Link icon

Step 4.

Copy the link into your clipboard, save it and share it with your friends and clients!

This link will take people directly to your places page, where you can ask them to give you an online review, or just show them how cool your business looks in Google!

I’m helping clients and friends with this by creating a list style web page with links to their important profile pages (google, yahoo, bing, yelp, citysearch, etc) and uploading it to their site on a cute little URL such as; mysmallbiz.com/spread-the-word

I block it with robots.txt to keep it out of the search results and I tell them to only give the URL out to their happy customers. 🙂

Wow – think about this before sharing your Places pages link: Google is recommending competitive businesses on your businesses Place page. Just another reason to make your own website the “hub” of online activity for your business.

Even though your post was published early 2010 — today in September 2011 I have found it to be helpful.

I used your instructions to find the best link to a claimed Google Places page for embedding the link into a QR code.

The QR code is to help promote a claimed Google Maps and linked Google Places page offline with a self made window decal (based on the Google Favorites campaign decals).

Thanks!
