So what happens now if you have an online business?

Through Pages > Get My Page, the only options I am seeing are Storefront, Service Area and Brand

Yes, Jo, they don't make that one very obvious.

But since the 1st 2 are for local businesses and since online only businesses can't have a Google Local page, the only option would be one on the right. Business page. And of course that one does not rank in search or maps or have the review option. It would just be a social page.

Thanks Linda - as I was thinking about it overnight (how sad am I?), I realised that Google thinks we must know that a Brand page would be 'anything else' :)
