When consumers are looking for a business like yours, they go online to find what they want and where they want it, when they want it. They’re looking to choose the best business for their needs, and with a complete Yelp Business Page, they’re more likely to find you during their research process.
Claiming is how you manage your Yelp Page. Claiming your page allows you to edit the details on your page and gives you access to a suite of free tools and metrics for your business. For example, you can update your hours, add details about your business, upload photos, respond to reviews, and more. It allows you to bring your unique business brand and personality to Yelp.
The benefits of claiming your page go far beyond branding. Businesses who claim their page and provide detailed business information are more likely to get engagement from potential customers on Yelp, including more calls and website clicks.
Find your business by typing in your business name. If it’s listed, click on it. If it’s not listed, click “Add to Yelp for free.”
Create an account by entering your business information and email address. You should use an email address you check regularly to stay on top of what’s happening with your page.
Verify your account by entering your verification code. You’ll get an email or call to the number listed on your page.
Optimize your page by following the steps below.
Are you open for business?
Your business page is like your website or physical storefront—you wouldn’t want toleave it blank or show incorrect information. That’s because consumers check to see if you’re open before making the effort to contact you. Without basic details like hours and photos, they may think you’re closed and move onto the next business. Read more about choosing the right photos and why it’s important to upload quality images.
