How to add a business to Apple Maps

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Hi Johnny,
    Thanks for your post. It never dawned on me that Maps also sported this service.
    I’m curious to see the difference in implementation between Google for business and Apple.

    Take care,

      Thanks ever so much for writing Leo. Yes, I do think it is important, and yes I do think it’s necessary for SMEs to get their heads around local search.

    Hi there and thank you so much for this article. Do you know if it’s also possible to add photos to your listing? I can’t seem to find it, and I see that it currently pulls the photo it has from Yelp. needless to say, it’s not the one I’d prefer. So if there is a way to add my own, that would be great.

      I think you have to speak to Yelp to try to get the image used updated. You probably need to find out what criteria are used by Yelp to choose that image, and then probably use some SEO tips to try to replace that image with a higher performing image in search.

    Hi, Jonny

    Thanks for sharing this article. it’s very helpful to me

  4. We have a phone tree and the phone call verification won’t work. What do you suggest?

    This is absolutely ludicrous. There are only a few countries available when you want to add a place. What in heavens name is Apple thinking here?

    I have a problem, because there is no possibility to put location in Republic of Croatia (Europa). Please could you help me.
    Thank you 🙂

    In the countries dropdown I can’t see India. Need Help.

      Hi there,
      I’m not in India, so it is possible they don’t support it there yet — which I didn’t know and frankly that’s a bad thing — hope you figure it out!
      (I can’t help you with this as I am not where you are and can’t see what you see 🙁
