Business isn't showing up in search results (google maps)

Hi,

 

I've created a business on google and its verified

 

1) Kim Vermeulen

2) Bekelstraat 148, Sint-Niklaas

3) 03 502 49 10

4) https://plus.google.com/105907597236909123024/about?gmbpt=true

 

For some reason i'm having trouble finding my business on google maps.

 

for example: 

If i search "fysiotherapeut Sint-Niklaas" I get a direct hit.

If I search "Kinesist Sint-Niklaas" I cant find myself.

 

For this I've noticed that if i searched on "fysiotherapeut" I can find myself. But if I click on it it shows it that i'm a Kinesist"

 

https://www.google.be/maps/place/Kim+Vermeulen/@51.1883806,4.1402215,18z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sfysioth...

 

On the other hand if I click on the link "published on google Maps" in mybusiness information: It show my company link, but as a fysiotherapeut (see hyperlink)

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Kim+Vermeulen/@51.189257,4.1366693,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0...

 

In my business profile it says Kinesist

How could I get the right information on Google Maps?

 

kind regards,

first of all I get you  -not even best ranked but get you on page two of all results for "Physical Therapist in 9100 Sint-Niklaas"

About the category I'm still researching:

 

there is a differnce in Googles default list for Netherland and for Belgium.

The same universal parameter "gcid:physiotherapist" is coded  for the Netherlands as "Fysiotherapeut" while it is coded for Belgium (in dutch Userinterface) as "Kinesist"

This difference is obviously intented.

I am just checking with a translation agency  in Belgium (Flandres) wheather the difference between Belgium and Netherlands is justified or wrong.

Hi,

Psychical therapist is indeed in the netherlands a "Fysiotherapeut" and in Belgium (Flanders) "Kinesist". so the common name in Belgium is Kinesist

But if i just search in google (google.be or maps.google.be) for "Kinesist in 9100 Sint-Niklaas" I get results, but my business isn't showing up. So all other "Kinesist" in sint-niklaas are showing up on both of the pages if you use the common search word "kinesist"

google.be:
https://www.google.be/search?q=kinesist+sint-niklaas&oq=kinesist+sint-niklaas&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j0l5...

maps.google.be:
https://www.google.be/maps/search/kinesist+in+9100+sint-niklaas/@51.1964721,4.1180718,13z

I was also just wondering why those are showing up and mine isn't. I've tried to switch & reswitch the primair category to "kinesist" and thats the only category i've pointed out.

kind regards,

Google usually doesn't help or comment on ranking issues and as with my above screeshot yo can see your ranking isn't that good anyway.

I agree on that ranking, because the business is fairly new created.

But I think there is a difference between not finding it at all and the ranking.

the problem is that it only pops up on the keyword "fysiotherapeut" and not on the common keyword "kinesist" even if my primair category is "kinesist"
I'm just wondering out why "kinesist" isn't working at all.

 

On a logged in browser and zoomed in:kinesist-sint-niklaas.PNG

 

On a not logged in browser zoomed a little bit out to see some results

And if you see it shows "kinesist" on the page it self from the company

search result on fysiotherapeut (which isn't the common name in belgium for physical therapist)

Thanks in advance
