Three companies that aggregate business data for United States businesses, or more commonly known as a data aggregation service are:
This serves ad one feeder data source for business locations. This means the potential exists for a businesses location to be incorrect based upon this reference source.
Obviously, these are not only feeders for Google but for other sites including Bing, Yelp, Verizon, you get the picture!
If you are registered with the Secretary of State of your state as a corporation, yes, Google will search there as well. If you are doing business under an assumed name in you county, and that is public information that will also serve as a source.
Google uses its own Google Street View as a data reference source. It also used Google Map Maker which is why we always include a Google map for our websites.
