Can you get seen on Google without a website?

Surprisingly yes, you can.

It’s called Google My Business and it’s connected with Google Maps.

And then there’s also other websites which might get on page one that you are listed in.

In the above picture you can see three examples of being on page one on Google.

  1. Website
  2. Another website (Online Directory)
  3. Google My Business

Google Maps

The main, and most prominent listing, is Google My Business.  The picture, the map and 5 star review give this listing a fantastic prominence.

First things first, you’ll need to get your business listed on Google Maps.  Head over to our article with a video tutorial to show you how, if you haven’t already done this.

Google My Business

Once you have listed your business with Google Maps it’s time to turn your focus to Google My Business.  Listing with Google Maps is likely to have created the Google My Business listing.  But if you’ve got lost and you’re not sure how to get back there, go to and sign in using your Google account.

You can edit, change and update your business details in your Google My Business area, including:

  • Opening hours
  • Category of business
  • Photos


It’s great to get reviews on Google.  The Google reviews become part of the Google Business listing. Not only are reviews great for customer relations they’ll help you get seen on Google when people are searching for you.


Getting on page one on Google takes time.  It may take anywhere from  3 weeks to 3months for your Google My Business listing to show up on page one when people search in Google using your business name.  If it takes longer than this, you may need to put energy into:

  • getting reviews
  • adding photos
  • updating information

Other Websites (Online Directories)

Being listed in a high ranking directory, in the example above the directory is EventBrite, is another way of getting your business on page one without a company website.

Other examples of other online directories are:

  • Air B ‘n B
  • Car Sales
  • Yellow Pages
  • Trip Advisor

Lots of industries have their own unique websites where they list lots of like businesses. Often these websites will appear on page one, and if you’re listed in it you might get the feature spot.

Head over to our Online Directories article to glean what directories could be valuable to your business.

As with Google My Business, keep your directory listing up-to-date and add in plenty of information and images as allowed.
