Hello,

 

We have successfully added our business in GMB, and it was successfully verfied and all required info has been added correctly. But for some reason our listing is not showing when searched in Google Web and Google Maps.

Our business is register in google with "Harpenden Taxis Drivr LTD" and its not showing when someone search our target keyword eg "Harpenden Taxis".

 

Any idea why its not showing up in Google?

Yep - I know

but it's  then  a ranking issue (read https://support.google.com/business/answer/7091?hl=en)

or it seems to be a "possum" caused  matter

 

See this post from fellow TC Joy Hawkins: Everything you need to know about Google’s ‘Possum’ algorithm update There is a link within that post to one of the discussions at Lindas forum.

does the business listing have to be verified in order for it to be visible on google?

Can i set up a business listing on google and have it visible before it verifying it?
