Business not showing up on the right hand side of Google search results

Hi

We have 2 physical offices, one in Cape Town and one in Johannesburg.

 

When searching brand name M&C Saatchi Abel in Google on google.co.za, in close proximity within one of these 2 locations, our local business result doesn't show up in the right hand side of Google. However, when searching on google.com, both locations do show, within the search - see screenshot. Plus they do show in Google Maps.

 

it is the right hand side of Google search that I am battling with.

 

I have tried everything to get the results to show on the right hand side of Google search on google.co.za. I have populated both G+ pages for both locations with posts, images and we even have real followers, plus a review on the one page. We have even now inserted json schema on the home page showing these 2 local businesses and organisation, with the maps reference, same as, etc. (this was done last week, so perhaps this needs more time, although it is already showing with Google Webmaster Tools)

 

I have other brands I work with that show up on the right hand side of search results with no effort and far lesser G+ pages. And they are lesser brands, with far less mentions around the net.

 

Both location G+ pages are

https://plus.google.com/+McsaatchiabelZa

https://plus.google.com/+McsaatchiabelZaJohannesburg/

 

I also even created  a separate brand page which I thought may help

https://plus.google.com/+McsaatchiabelZaSouthAfrica/

 

Website is http://www.mcsaatchiabel.co.za/

 

Please help, I am not sure where the conflict is, or why they are not shown.

 

Thank you for your time.

we never should suppose listings violating their guidelines get an proper ranking.

Never add city names to a GMB name

I did not know that was violating guidelines - I will change that immediately and remove the city names. I was merely trying to differentiate the various pages.

 

Thanks for your input.
