Be Featured on the Louisa County Tourism Website (VisitLouisa.com)
Our Goal: We, the Louisa County Parks, Recreation & Tourism department, are updating the Louisa County tourism site, VisitLouisa.com. By featuring tourism-related business information from across the County, the site intends to offer visitors a complete picture of lodging, food, and activity options. Our goal is to feature more Louisa businesses – ranging from farms to salons – on the tourism site.
How We Get Business Information: We use a system that pulls business listings from “Google My Business,” however, business entries can also be manually created through our site. We recommend creating or updating a Google My Business listing so that your business increases visibility on Google searches in general whether your business is related to tourism or not (or in other words, if your business is not related to tourism, you can benefit from following the outlined Google My Business steps). Please see instructions below related to Google My Business listings and manually creating a listing through VisitLouisa.com.
Google My Business
Your business may have a Google My Business listing even if you didn’t create one. We encourage you to create, claim or update your business information on Google.
To claim a listing:
1.) Google your business.
2.) Click “Own this business” and then follow the prompts.
3.) You’ll receive a postcard with a code to verify your address in the mail within a few days.
To create a listing:
1.) If your business does not appear on Google like the pictured example, sign in/create an account at https://www.google.com/business/.
2.) Once signed in, click the “Businesses” link in the navigation on the left.
3.) You will then see a blue button on the right to “Add business.”
To update your listing:
1.) Log into https://www.google.com/business/.
2.) Add photos, website information, etc.
