Cant find my business' website when I search even tho I did verify my location

Hello, 

 

My business name is On The Spot Photo Magnets 

My current business address is 550 w Arlington Pl , Chicago, IL 60614

My number is 888-339-6468

My website is www.OnTheSpotPhotoMagnets.com

 

I can not find my website nor any other search when I plug in the name. 

 

I did verify my business with the special code, but still can not see it.

 

My website even before that used to be showed on search. 

 

Please advice.

 

Thank you.

 

-Barak

Hi Barak,

 

I checked your business and I was able to find it but I have to type the business location and city for it to appear.

 

I checked the GMB page and the address seems to be not complete.

I think if you update it with the complete address and adjust the marker into the exact address. It will be more searchable in maps and in search.

Hi Emmanual, 

Thank you for reply. 

When I go to the account the address is completed....

Can you see my website when you google On The Spot Photo Magnets? 

I have social media connected, I have the analytics as well, but my site still does not come up...

Any advice?

Hi Barak,

 

Your website is not indexed by google.

It is either there a script in the robot.txt that blocks google to index your website or your website may have been banned or blocked. 

I conducted a quick site check up on your website. 

Do the same in your end. Type site:http://www.onthespotphotomagnets.com/ in google and check whether your website and its landing pages will show up.

I am not sure if this can be affecting your google my business page as well.

Thank you so much for all your help!

Why would it be blocked? what should I do? 

When I click on the link you sent me it does take me to my website...

I am very frustrated now, and probably losing money...

If you can kindly direct me who should I contact I will appreciate that very much.

Thank you!!!

don't click the link. Go to www.google.com and type in the search box. "site:http://www.onthespotphotomagnets.com/" remove the quotation marks.

 

Look at the previous screenshot. "site:website" will check your indexed pages in google. The problem with your website is not in its google my business page but in the code attached to the website. It is telling google not to index the pages or it did something like spamming or implemented an SEO that violates the rules of google like black hat or maybe it got infected by a malware.

 

You can talk to your web developer about this.

Does your site have a google search console?

I see that something is wrong, and with your advice emailed my developer. 

However, I asked him before and he had no answers... 

Do you have any idea who can I talk to about it? maybe contact google directly some how? 

Thanks again so very much for your help!

I found the problem

 

Just tell your developer to remove the "noindex".

That code I highlighted with the content =noindex, follow"

It is telling google not to index the website and not to appear in google search engine.

You can read more here:

Basically, right now, your website is set as not to appear in google.

If you have access to your website, you can remove it by yourself but you need to be careful not to remove other codes in there.

My dear friend, 

First, thank you so very much for all your help!

Can you please double check if my developer made the changes, he said he did.

Any other issues you see?

Thanks again so very much,

Hi Barak,

 

The "noindex" tag has been removed.

It will not get crawled right away. We will still wait for the googlebots to crawl it but your website will get crawled/indexed. No worries on that. It can be today. tomorrow or a few days but it will not take that much time. 

 

If you want your website to get crawled right away and not wait for the spiders to crawl them and to index them in search engine results page.

 

You can manually submit them here:
