In an effort to ‘clean-up’ in the search market and push specialised business search engines, like, to the sidelines, Google has beefed up its business listings. Like many directory services, Google sees churches as just one type of business so make sure your church is listed.

Importantly, this is applicable to the UK and UK churches and not just US churches (and it is free). Try and see if it available for your own country’s version of Google.

You have been able to add detail to the listing of your church for some time, but Google has increased the range of information you can now add, for instance 10 photographs and custom attributes. You enter a few details, and then a letter will be received in the post for security reasons before the listing is created.

To add your church, go to Google UK maps add business (for US churches go here).
