Added 2nd location / google map disappeared from Google search

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I recently added a new location - our first location was in Ithaca, NY and the new one is in Manhattan.

 

Before adding the Manhattan location the map would show up on the right hand side of a google search (for the original Ithaca location). It took a while for the new Manhattan location to show up at all on google maps. Now it does but the issue is that neither location shows up on a google search.

The search terms I'm using is "proper puss" the business name (a waxing salon... NOT anything sketchy ;)

Any suggestions on how to get (preferably both locations) to show up on the google search page?

Hi Evan

 

A couple of suggestions for you, to get things back on track.

 

Bedford: https://plus.google.com/102572596657263810830/about

 

I would add header, brand this up. 

 

Dryden: https://plus.google.com/109540223691783097571/about

 

Add logo, header and a business description ( dont copy other one ) add some location info

 

On your Website Location pages:

 

1) Below Fb & twit widgets, add the relevant G widget linking to the corresponding correct google local business page

 

2) get your developer to schema markup the address just below the widgets : https://schema.org/BeautySalon

 

3) build up some local business citations "for both businesses"

 

https://moz.com/learn/local/citations-by-city

 

 

The intention of the above is to link the correct pages to the correct locations, so google understands what belongs where, with a search result. It will also help boost the local business pages for people searching locally

Hey,

The good news is the Google+ pages still show up when you search for each branch (proper puss manhattan etc). Usually Google will display the Google+ page of the nearest location to the searcher. But I believe what you are trying to get is both locations to show up when someone searches your brand?

I believe it all boils down to how much trust Google has in the locations for the business. How long has the new Google+ page been live? It might just take a while for the trust to build.
