Getting listed in the same area with other related companies

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Would like to understand the details on how I can be part of a group listing of similar companies that comes up when doing a search?

Example is shown when you do a search stating "motorcycle training Calgary" . When done a listing of training companies shows up under a location map. I would like my training company to be part of that listing, however not sure where to start and the steps required to take to get there and as well to understand what commitment I would be signing up for in doing this before hand, is what I'm looking for.

Hi Dennis,

Have you already claimed and verified your Google Local business page? - https://support.google.com/business/answer/2911778?hl=en

Can you provide the business details? Website URL would help too.

Thanks

Hello Manoj
Thanks for the contact followup.
When I first registered as a google business listing I noted that I was on the list I was refering too. That was great to see. However in a short time of being listed I noted that it was not consistance in having my company as part of the list., and being this was new to me I was checking almost everyday to see how it was working. After being listed every day it appeared to be listing my company every other day within a week or two then it appeared to expended the time in being listed between those days to now from what I can see it does not list it when ever I check.
So I really don't know what or why that is the current case with this and therefore not sure if there is anymore I can do, do to my limited knowledge of how Google works.
If your able to help in pointing me in a direction to improve this that would be great. Dennis

Hi I run a motorcycle training school. It's location is 30 km east of
Calgary. If I search MOTORCYCLE TRAINING on Google I don't see my list at
all many pages in. If I search MOTORCYCLE TRAINING CALGARY then I see my
listing on the first page but not on the motorcycle listing group that I
use to see before. When I search Mobile motorcycle training then I get the
business listing I registered with Google right way. Is there anything else
you need to know?
