I've been trying to get the Place ID for my SAB using Place ID Finder, but nothing comes up.
Is that because there are not IDs for SABs, or is there a way to retrieve them?


Unfortunately, this method does not seem to work for a Service Area Business (SAB) or a business which is not yet on Google Maps.

For that, there’s a bit of a convoluted work-around outlined here:

I use the GatherUp Review URL Generator, which is a Chrome plugin.

The primary purpose of the plugin, which is to produce a review URL, is moot since the introduction of GMB short names. However, the plugin reveals the Maps CID (which I use all the time) and the Place ID, even for SABs.
