    It so simple as that. As i can't post the URL, I am just copying the source from Google.

    Please follow the below steps to get your business listed in Google.

    1. Visit Google Places.
    2. If you already have a Google Account, sign in with your email and password. You can also use an AdWords login address and password, if you have one. If you don't have a Google Account, click Sign up for an account now, or go straight to the sign-up page.
    3. On Google Places homepage, click Add new business.
    4. On the “Find your business” tab, search for your business by phone number to see if Google already has information about your business.
    5. Review the search results, if any, to see if one of them describes your business.
    6. Fill out the basic information about your business.
    7. Click Next.You'll now have the opportunity to provide the following information about your business:
    8. You can preview your listing as it will appear in Maps on the right side of your screen. New information will appear in the preview as you enter it. When you’re satisfied with your listing, click Submit at the bottom of the page.
    9. Choose how you would like to verify your listing and click Finish.

    Previously I verified my account through phone verification. Recent days google takes very long time to send the confirmation letter if your business located out of US.

    It may be due to many number of people were registering their sites under local business listings. But Google will send you the confirmation letter, ones if you have given the proper address for your business.
