My friend has been told by Google she needs to advertise with them to get her "Google My Business" listing showing, (or they've led her to believe that).
She's stuck, as her 3-4 competitors are showing on the map, but not her. She just wants to be on the map. What's the best easiest way?
Main Search term: "Tattoo Studio (town name)"
I don't have an off-line biz so I don't know, but the research I've done (now that you don't need a Google+ page), is that a local business can still be seen on the map at the top without spending money on ads.
Can someone let me know if that's correct please?
