In the coming months, merchants will be able to complete their account setup directly on Google Search and Google Maps.
You can see whether your profile is visible to the public. If not, the necessary steps will be noted.

The changes in-line with this update will soon be evident on Google‟s Help Center, as well as the Community & Support channels.
