Business marker and business name not showing

Hi,

Probably due to a rookie error I have made, but can anyone help?

I have a verified business in google places and the business name shows up in the panel listing at the left hand side of the page view on places but there is no marker on the map and my business name doesn't show up on the map. Please could someone explain to me how I can correct this? All my address details are correct and when I hover over the text listing at the side it shows my business name on the map, but who by way of potential customers is going to do that, they are just going to look at the map aren't they and there is quite a lot of competition in my area.

My business name is pixie lee pet services.

Thank you very much

(Please explain as simply as possible, I am a real beginner with this)

Hi @Lee L

at the mentioned address there is your business shows up:

Maybe you are looking for what Google call a "place label"?

 

But in this case there is no much to help you as such place labels are not mandatory for each GMB listing.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my query, it's helpful to know it's not something I did wrong, but frustrating that there doesn't seem to be much I can do to fix it right now.

Best Wishes

Lee
