Hi,

 My business was verified 3/4/17 . I am unable to find the listing on Google when doing a catagory search.  Example, Stump Grinders near Hertford N.C..  My list does not appear. The only way I can find it is to search the business name directly.

RJ Hilts and Son Stump Grinding

413 Whitehat Road

Hertford,   N.C. 27944

I found this listing with a different name at the same address and phone number - https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Hilts+Custom+Rifles/@36.159791,-76.370612,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0...

 

This is likely causing some ranking issues. Can you tell mw about that listing/business?

Hi Colan,

           The Stump Grinding business is a secondary business that was established to help my son that was in the tree business.  I own all the equipment. My son lives about 8 houses down from me on the same road.  Would it be beneficial to use his address rather than mine as he does all the work in the field.? Would that eliviate all the confusion on google?

It likely​ would​, yes. But what's just​ as important is a unique​ phone​ number​. The​ address​ just​ needs to be the actual​, physical​ location​ of the business​, whatever​ that​ is.

@Kranthi P Please start your own thread so we can keep topics organized. It sounds like you are referring to Place Labels which is a different topic than what the OP was asking about.
