How To Hide My Address on Google My Business

How To Hide My Address on Google My Business

Hey everyone, it’s Bryan
Caplan here with the bigger, better biz channel where we equip you
with the tools and know how to grow that bigger, better small business. Now today, this is a question that I get a lot and
I finally wanted to make a video about it because it’s important. Um,
I’ll give you a story, you know, so for me, I’m on the road quite a bit. I used to have an office space here in
Boston and it didn’t make sense for me. So I went from having an office
space to working from home. You know, when I’m not on the road for
Google or for my business, presenting to small businesses about
digital marketing, I’m working from home. Now. One of the things is I don’t
want people to know where I live. I don’t want them to go on
Zillow and get a Zestimate. I don’t want them to get
directions to my house, speak for safety issues as well. So I, what I did is I went into Google my
business and I removed my address. A lot of people ask me,
how do we hide an address? We want the Google my business listing
to be active. We want people to see it. We want to make sure that we
can collect reviews with it, but we don’t want people to actually
have an address where they can request directions or come visit us.
So I’m going to show you, you’re actually looking right now at
a fake business that I created Brian’s pizza and with a fake address as well. And so what I’m going to do is I’m
going to show you within the Google my business dashboard how to remove
the address. Notice right here, Brian’s pizza is located at 90
South main street and Sharon mass. Well I am going to open one of those
ghost restaurants as you’ve probably heard of with door dash and grub hub and
seamless basically a restaurant where you can’t visit it. We’re just
going to be offering delivery. So I’m going to go into my
Google my business dashboard. I’m going to click on info. When I click on info, I’m brought to a
screen where I see the business name. I can change that. I see my different categories
and then I see the address. I’m going to click on the
pencil next to the address. And right here we have the
region, the United States. We have the address that I put in 90
South main street, Sharon, Massachusetts, Oh two Oh six seven how do I remove that? It’s as simple as clicking clear address. Now you leave everything blank. Don’t
touch a thing. Don’t put in the city, state and zip code anything
and you click apply. Now here’s what’s going to
happen with Google. My business. It shows no location, deliveries
and home services only. And then I can choose my
service areas underneath. So here are the areas where I would
provide delivery. Sharon Foxboro, Walpole, Norwood, Canton. I can add another one East in
Massachusetts if I wanted to and apply. Now it will show my business services, those towns or cities. So won’t show my actual address,
but it’ll show my service region. So that’s really important. Now I can’t show you this because
this is not a verified business, not a real business. So I can’t verify it. I can’t show you what the Google my
business profile would look like, but you get an idea of how to remove the
address and how to add service areas. So again, you’d click right here on
the pencil to change the address, and then the service areas is right below. You. Click on the pencil and you can add or
remove different areas that you service. I hope this helps and
here’s to your success. Hey, thanks so much for watching the
