Enter your business address details in the next few fields. If you have location enabled on your device click on the icon at the end of the field to auto generate your address. Make sure you are at your business address when you do this otherwise map position searches will be inaccurate.

The map and address fields sometimes have a habit of defaulting to the wrong REGION. This a map application error and beyond our control. A common problem is that it reverts to larger areas such as West Midlands instead of using the county. Always check everything is correct before proceeding as the search engine is location driven and someone searching by a specific area may miss your business if this information is incorrect.

Set on map

Click on this to transfer your entered details to the map locator icon. It is always worth checking the position is correct and it has not changed any of your details in the previous fields. Alternatively you can manually move the icon to your address on the map. This position is VERY important as it forms the basis of all search results.

Changes the type of map. Leave at default.

Images

Click on the field to add images for your lsiting. You can add up to 8 images. Your primary image will be used for the background featured image of your listing. If you do not have any images a default image will be used and your photo gallery area will also contain a default image.

If possible, try to avoid images over 800px wide as images automatically scale to fit the available viewport. Very large images increase the time it takes for the page to load and may cause viwers to leave your listing due to slow loading times.

Image resolution should be 72ppi ( standard camera resolution ).

If you want to resize an image you can try

Once you have selected and uploaded your images, you can click on the edit button on each image and add a title and a caption if so required. This is not displayed publically but is very useful for search engine recognition and search results. Titled and captioned images have much higher chances of returning results in relevant image searches in Google and other search engines.

The uploaded images can be dragged into the correct order in which you wish them to be displayed.
