How To Find Your Google Places ID

If you are an officiant listed in our directory, and you have purchased the Enhanced Plus package, you have the added benefit of showing your Google My Business reviews on your listing page.

To do so, follow the instructions below. We know the instructions look technical and intimidating, but they are really simple if you follow the instructions exactly. However, we totally understand if you’ve tried following the instructions, but things still didn’t work out, so feel free to contact us for help if you can’t figure it out.

The Easy Way -When It Works

STEP ONE: Just click here to search for your business’ address on the map, and your Place ID will be shown. It will look similar to the example below. Copy the Place ID it gives you, so you can paste it using the instructions in STEP TWO below.

STEP TWO: Paste the ID you just copied into your listing like the example shown here (using your own ID, not the one in this example):

The Harder Way If the Easy Way Doesn't Work

STEP ONE: Search for your business name on Google. If you have a Google My Business page, this search should show a Knowledge Panel about your business on the right side of the Google search results page, like this:

STEP TWO:  In Chrome, right-click the “Write a review” button.

STEP THREE: Click “Inspect“ from the menu that pops up.

STEP FOUR: Once “Inspect” is chosen, a window will open up under your browser that looks similar to this:

STEP FIVE: Look for the data-pid=”SomeCodeHere” in the code that shows here. The scrambled up letters and numbers between the quotes of the data-pid= section is your Google Places ID. Copy this code between the quotes of the data-pid section, so you can paste it into the Google Places ID field when editing your listing. In this example below, the Google Places ID is ChIJTcVpDFr424ARO5jPnMU4APY. Yours will be different, of course. Don’t use the one from this example.

STEP SIX: Paste the ID you just copied into your listing like the example shown here (using your own ID, not the one in this example):
