1. Full business name : IFIA | International Federation of Inventors' Associations
2. Current business address : Rue Du 31-Décembre 8, 1207 Geneva / Swiss
3. Current telephone number : (+41) 22 548 01 09
4. Google+ URL: IFIA

 

Hi,

As you can see, this is an account of international association which work with inventors from all over the worlds.

 

The headquarter is in Geneva. Now if you search "IFIA Geneva" you can see the business information in google search result.

If you search "IFIA" business information will not appear.

 

Why ? Is it depend on my address? What is the solution?

Hi Bijan,

Looking at your website it appears that IFIA Geneva is more of an international organisation than a local business. Can customers actually come to your headquarters during business hours to transact business?

Yes,

But there is a slim possibility.

Sincerely Yours,

Hi Bijan

In that case I do not believe you meet the Google guidelines for a Local page since that does require businesses to meet their customers face to face during the hours stated on their Google page.

This may be part of the reason you are not coming up in all the searches. So, you'll need to contact GMB support (this is the best way to get a phone call: https://support.google.com/business/contact/business_c2c_l?rd=2# with them) and ask for that page to be removed from the database as it was incorrectly created.

You can then create a Google Brand page via https://business.google.com and work on getting your organic search results optimised. I'd recommend getting a page on Wikipedia at the very least as results from there are often treated with authority by Google.

Hi

What should I do to see the same result for "IFIA" 's search in google as I see result for "IFIA Geneva"?

Is this related to my "business page" address?
