Business won't show up

I just opened my studio 2 days ago, and my listing has been verified.  If I google "tattoo st. Catharines" every other shop shows up except for mine.  What did I do wrong here?  

 

It also doesn't help that yellowpages screwed up and has my email address as my business name either, and I can't change that.  This has all been a nightmare for me.  Please help!

That's weird, because it doesn't show up when I search :(  Had friends try too.  Didn't work for them either.

@Helmut Geissler This is what I see when I search.  Even from a different computer. https://ibb.co/kDsfHa

A similar thing is happening to me too, I think. I can only see my (verified) business listing when I'm logged into google using the google account I created my google business listing with. Other local businesses near me can be seen, but not mine. Maybe that's because i serve a 32k radius as opposed to having a store front, although my address is there too.

To make things more complicated, there are two other listings for my business which I see sporadically (when logged in using some google ID of mine - I have several)! I clicked 'remove/delete listing' but they both remained! And now I'm afraid that if I did manage to successfully delete them, I might lose my online presence - if my SEOs are tied up with those and not the first. (one is definitely not verified)

I've spent days looking into this. I'd appreciate any advice!

@Andy Joy W

your GMB listing violates their guideline regarding the naming.

While "JingJangJooJong" would be ok the actual name of oyur listing is "JingJangJooJong - full-on-fun parties for kids!"

 

Enough is enough: " full-on-fun parties for kids!" is to consider as marketing speech and isn't allowed as part of the GMB name.

Ah ha - thank you! Had no idea 😄 
Although I can't even see one with that name! The one I thought was my main one was JingJangJooJong Children's Party Entertainers. Sigh. I clearly have no idea what I've done as these listings don't show up consistently. Back to the drawing board 😔

I was waiting for a friend to help me hence the delay. In the end I started an adwords campaign which got me enough work not to be bothered with my google listing. My friend said he'd look at it in a few weeks. The whole thing does my head in.
