To add a new Location follow the steps below:
Step 1: Go to the add Location page
Step 2: Click on the 'Add Location(s)' button
From here a pop up will give you 3 options:
- Import GMB Locations
- Add Single Location
- Add Locations via CSV file (For bulk upload of locations)
To add a single Location follow these steps:
Step 1: Select the 'Add Location' button as shown above
Start typing in the business name and choose your location in the field.
We will then pull data from Google’s Places API to populate Location details. You’ll be asked to confirm which profile to use before we populate. We need this data to monitor your Location’s local search performance.
Note: Google only returns businesses with a visible street address.
When you start typing the Locations will come up.
You also have the option to add a Location manually if it is not yet on Google, simply click the button 'Manually Enter Location'.
Once you are happy with the Location you can click ' Use This Location'.
You will then be taken to Location details where you can edit or add more information if needed.
Unique Location Reference: This is an internal reference that you can use to quickly identify Locations in the search function. We'll autocomplete the field for you in the format << BUSINESSNAME-ZIPCODE >>, but you can replace our suggestion with your own reference as long as it's unique to this Location.
Assign to Client: Here you can select a client if you have multiple locations for one business.
After clicking the 'Next' button you will be taken to a page to add further business details, this information is purely for Citation Builder, you can skip this step if it's not needed by clicking 'Add This Location' button.
Now your location is set up but you will have no reports for it. To set up reports you can select 'Monitor this Location'.
If you already have a report you can assign the location to it in the report settings.
