1. How to connect Google Business Profile with rankingCoach?
If you already have a Google Business Profile entry, it is possible to connect your existing entry to your rankingCoach account, and manage it from the rankingCoach app. This means that rankingCoach will enable you to update your working hours, contact details, or reply to reviews directly within the app.
The first step is to complete the Google Business Profile onboarding section.
Go to the left menu and select “Google Business Profile”. Click on “Start setup” and follow the steps. At the end of the onboarding process, you will get the unique code to add to your Google Business Profile users list and invite rankingCoach as the owner of the listing.
This code is just an example. Check your account to get the code unique for your account.
It is important to add rankingCoach as the owner of the listing as this will allow us to fully connect and manage your account. Please note that you will still remain the primary owner or the account, and we’ll be added as secondary owner.
Adding rankingCoach as owner of the account is the four step process, and we can be added to the listing only by the owners of the account.
If you have a manager role, please note that you will not be able to add new users.
