Use this Chrome Extension to find the CID link

How to Search and Scan for Service Area Businesses (SABs):

  1. Google Maps Over SERP: Use Google Maps instead of the search engine results page (SERP) to find SABs. SABs do not appear in Google search dropdowns.

  2. Find a Service Area Business:

    • Go to Google Maps.
    • Search for a business without an address (SAB).
  3. Use Chrome Extension for CID Link:

    • Get the CID link of the business using a Chrome extension.
    • Paste the CID link into Dominator and click to generate a scan (takes 3-15 seconds).
  4. Alternative Method: Map URL:

    • Get the map URL from Google Maps.
    • Paste the URL or input the address, zip code, or city in Dominator.
    • Adjust the pin manually if needed.
  5. Troubleshooting:

    • If the CID link doesn’t work, it might be corrupted or the business is new or recently unsuspended.
    • Retry by re-entering the CID or map URL.
  6. Waiting for Scans:

    • Be patient; scans can take up to a minute.
    • Ensure the grid appears to confirm the scan is complete.
  7. Final Steps:

    • For recurring scans, repeat the steps with the CID or map URL.
    • Do not change the address or zip code before adding the URL.
