Google has updated its Google My Business Guidelines. The updated guidelines say that PO Boxes or mailboxes at remote locations are not acceptable and the virtual office should have the staff during business hours.

Google’s updated policy said, “Use a precise, accurate address to describe your business location. PO Boxes or mailboxes located at remote locations are not acceptable.

Service-area businesses—businesses that serve customers at their locations—should have one page for the central office or location and designate a service area from that point. Service-area businesses can't list a "virtual" office unless that office is staffed during business hours.

Some businesses, like pizzerias that have both have restaurant seating and deliver pizza to customers, are hybrid service-area businesses. These businesses can show their storefront address and designate a service area in Google My Business. If you serve customers at your address and want to set a service area, your business location should be staffed by your team and able to receive customers during its stated hours.”
