Our Farm is now on Google Maps

In case you didn’t know you can list your business on Google Maps free of charge, and it is easy!  All you need to do is to go to http://www.google.ca/local/add/, and then create a listing for your business.  Once you are done filling the forms and completing the listing, they will ask you to enter a PIN number to activate the listing.

Letter from Google. Cool!

Letter from Google. Cool!

For security reasons, Google needs you to prove that you exist and that you are located where you claim to be located.  They will send you a PIN number by mail to the mailing address that you have entered for your business listing (They won’t send it to any other mailing address).  It took around 3 weeks to receive our PIN.  Let me tell you that it was pretty exciting to receive a letter from California :-)

Unfortunately, It looks like Our Farm is still not available through Google Maps search after entering the PIN to activate our listing.  Apparently, it could take up to 6 weeks to become available. I guess we need to be a little patient :-) For now, it works when we enter our web site domain name (‘ourfarmcsa.ca’) into the search bar. Here is the result:

Thank you Google! :-)
