Why do we ask for details in Advanced settings?

Susan Guinto -


We ask for your business name zip code and phone number to identify results for your business when your website URL is not displayed in some local results.

This also enables us to track where your Google My Business listing is ranking in SERPs.

You can also enter variations of the business name this enables us to identify any citations that perhaps fall under a slightly different business name.
