Business isn't showing up on the map or on google local results for voice lessons or singing lessons near midtown manhattan.  I was wondering if anyone had any input that might be useful. It's been listed for like 2 weeks.

Hi @Eleonor E

 

First off, I would like to suggest you remove Manhattan from that business name ... is that really the business name ?

 

Secondly, you do appear for your name in search, good start.

Next when i search in maps, you don't appear in the main 3 pages of listings, but you do when you zoom in.

 

So this indicates an authority filter or (Possum algo )

Where to start dealing with the issue.

 

Your Website:

 

Your map positions are partially linked with your organic positions for the website. I have searched past 3 pages in Google for voice lessons manhattan new york and can't find your site.

 

1) Segment your site - New York, San Diego, San Fran

 

You are currently cramming it all in on home page and Google has no idea what you provide and where.

 

For example your <title> reads

 

<title>Voice and Singing lessons in NYC, San Francisco, San Diego. Online Skype Singing/Voice lessons. Other online platforms (Oovoo, Google Chat, etc) Singing/Voice Lessons and Coaching</title>

 

Google stops after 50 characters.

 

They should be proper pages with proper titles to each >> send the correct signals.

 

<title>Voice and Singing lessons in NYC - Jazz Vocalist Eleonor England</title>

<title>Voice and Singing lessons in San Francisco - Jazz Vocalist Eleonor England</title>

<title>Voice and Singing lessons in San Diego - Jazz Vocalist Eleonor England</title>

 

When they are correctly segmented, you can then add the location address to page and embed business lisiting map.

 

You can add Schema markup to each section: https://schema.org/LocalBusiness

 

Send the correct signals.

Thanks, TimThat's super helpful.  In degmenting, do I need a new domain for each city?  Or should I just title the location pages.  Thanks!

Hi @Eleonor E

 

Nope, they are all on the same site.

 

You just create specific location / service area pages for that city. Here is quite a good breakdown :
