Google's Info Box and My College
September 26, 2013 6:58 PM Subscribe
So you know how when you look up a company or in my case, a college, on Google and you see a box on the right side with all their information (map, contacts, etc)? I work at a museum at a college, and we'd like to get our information set up this way.

The college itself has one of these boxes, as do other departments (the performing arts building, etc.). I have been tasked to get this to happen, but I don't know how to go about this. I've set up a Google+ account, and it seems like that's Google's solution, but that hasn't worked out for me. Although I've put the code in, the "test" fails. Also, the code Google provides assumes you want a Google+ text link on your page, which is crazy and useless. I've looked at the source of the pages from my own college and nowhere does it include the code that Google says I need.
So what am I doing wrong? I'm not the IT person, but I'd really like to be able to take care of this as our IT department is not as helpful as I'd like.
