You need to add your business in google places to view your listing under google map. You need to enter your business details. Google will send you a confirmation letter with the pin no. You need to enter that pin in the box in your google places account. Ones if it is done, your listing will be active and will be shown in a few days.

Agree with above reply. Google Place would be a great option for your business to be listed in Google.

Good thinking,

I went to: www.google.com/placesforbusiness and logged in using the Google account that I use for my analytics, and clicked the button to verify my listing (they are sending me a postcard).

Yes, to confirm your business listing Google will send you a letter to the company's postal address with in 2 weeks. You need to enter the confirmation pin in the space provided in your Google business listing account. Only then your business will be shown in Google map.

As everyone else in this forum has said, you know, getting a Google+ listing is key to developing your local business. But in addition to your Google places listing, make sure you add up to 10 images, you add videos. Make sure your description in Google places really makes sense and really describes your business well. And the other thing you're going to need for Google+ is citations, so citations is really a listing in a local directories. And what it has to do, you have to have the exact name, address and phone number that's in your Google+ listing, in all these different citation sites or these local directories.
That will go a long way in helping you to increase your presence on local listings.
