Yes, you can use Google My Business even if you don’t have a physical location that customers can visit. When you sign up for GMB, you will be asked to enter your business address for verification purposes. However, you can choose to hide your address from your business profile if you don’t want it to be shown publicly.
If you have a virtual business that serves customers in a specific area, such as a home-based or online business, you can use Google My Business to reach more potential customers. After verifying your business address, you can hide it from your Business Profile and instead specify the service area that you cover. This way, your business will show up on Google Search and Maps when people search for the products or services that you offer in your area.
