Adjust Location so Search Engine Prompts Specific Location

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Is there a way to adjust locations on the dashboard so that one is more prominent than the other? For example, if a user googles my business the secondary location is the default. I want to ensure user searches = my primary location.

Hi @Devon P

 

Google generally shows the closest one by users IP address or Geo location in mobile.

 

However it may also be your website structure which may be causing the lack of signals and Google is having to guess which to return.

 

If you provide the website and both listings url, together with which is the ideal one, I'll take a look

Hi @Devon P

 

Looking at the site, the best we can do is give them equal signals.

 

Then use some off site signals to try and boost the authority of the Asbury Park One.

 

On Website:

 

In header, get rid of NEW, format address aligned left.

Link the correct map from Directions:

 

Asbury Directions link: https://goo.gl/maps/aCA2BUJPJoq

 

Wanamassa Directions Link : https://goo.gl/maps/YP9DukVEKA82

 

In the contact details, provide Directions links again

Off Site:

 

Build up some local business citations for the Asbury location.

 

https://www.brightlocal.com/us-citation-sites/

 

Just slowly register the location over time with these sites.

 

 

Business Pages:

 

Have both business pages in G+ been filled in, with images and about section:

 

Dashboard >> https://business.google.com/manage/

 

Fill in Tag line and Story >> https://aboutme.google.com/

 

Post regularly on the Asbury G+ business page ( cross post when you update the FB page )
