Here is the important point on google maps, *David can beat Goliath* as one of the main factors used by Google Maps is location. If you are closest, the odds are good; you will appear and appear first.

) Avoid special characters ^#%&*( unless they are part of your business name.

Now are some step-by-step instructions.


Let me know if you have a problem as I am happy to help; I have a Google Ads Search Certification.
