Basic general failure for my business to show on google places, business, etc.

Hi All,

I created a listing via google my business months ago, and after a month of so, finally got verified. However, still for some reason the business doesn't show up on any relevant search, doesn't show on google places, google business, google maps. I can go into my listing in google my business. It is still there, still verified, just  not showing at all, apparently whatever I type in.

 

The business name is Customerwise Ltd in Exeter, Devon, England.

 

Can anybody help? Much appreciated.

 

By the way, is there an obvious way to just ask a question on here? I couldn't see one..

Thanks for the reply.
Sorry yes, I realise this myself late last night. So, it shows up on a company search. I realise I'm not fully clear on a few important distinctions and maybe I'm confusing organic search with components of google my business. One thing is this: when I search for Mystery Shopping Companies in Exeter, I get results on google places / google maps for other businesses but not mine. Mystery Shopping doesn't exist as a specific category, but then other businesses show up on it..

Any ideas / suggestions?

categories not available you cant use.
But such stuff you can show to google in "structured data" of your website
and by using scheme.org
