Using personal residence as address for google places
 
I am working on my website and trying to optimize on google places. I wanted to get some feedback on what you guys do for business address. I have narrowed it down to using a business address service which is pretty cheap and can give me a physical sounding address in the center of town instead of a po box. My concern is that if I used my personal residence as my address in these listings is that I could potentially be placing a target on my back if competition was to become angry with me and vandalize something. Am I going overboard or do you think better safe than sorry? I plan on doing business honestly
But after reading about vets experience I am concerned. You never know what people will do these days.

shadrach 06-20-2012 02:12 PM

Using your address but not having it show in google places is an option. Google will senda letter there to verify the address. I don't think you can sign up with a PO.Box, but that may have changed.

Hedgemaster 06-20-2012 04:09 PM

For my Google Places listing, I indicated my service area rather than listing my address.

I have no interest in advertising my personal residence info. (Even though it could be figured out easily enough)

CHEESE2009 06-20-2012 04:52 PM

The last thing you want is for clients to start ringing your doorbell.

It is the most ANNOYING thing ever.


I have clients ring my doorbell to ask when I'm coming to cut their lawn, etc... You eliminate all of your freedom.


somewhat related;

To this date, I have people who call my number who already know my name... and I haven't posted it anywhere!!! It's creepy man!

w0283767 06-20-2012 08:45 PM

Haha that is creepy! I just looked at it again and figured out how to hide address. Thanks guys.

Grass Doctor 06-20-2012 08:54 PM

u can rent a store unit and put the that address

Steve 06-21-2012 11:31 AM

I also wonder if the local town bureaucrats have gotten to the point where they will look up on google maps to help them enforce township zoning lawns.

jsslawncare 06-27-2012 06:21 PM

I use my home address and haven't had any problems. A few customers have even brought me money that was owed. No problems for me.

Steve 06-29-2012 10:15 AM

If you had the option of not using the google places or using it with your home address, which one would you choose?

Hedgemaster 06-29-2012 02:43 PM

I wouldn't use it. I'd work harder on web optimization.
