Google Map Listing Query

Hey @Brooks L

 

It looks like the business that appears to be filtering you out is the place across the street - Functinoal Chiropractic and Laser. Can you confirm that you see them on the list?

 

In looking at some of the very basic things you could do, I would suggest deleting your 2 other categories leaving only "Chiropractor".  I've seen evidence of category dillution which sometimes happens if Google isn't 100% certain what type of business you are.

 

I think rehabilitation center (a category you have) is really used mostly for drug rehab or other similar addictions. Vitamin & Supplements Store similarily is similarily used for retail chains that sell tons of health stuff.

 

I would try that and wait a couple days. Let me know what happens (if anything).

I couldn't reproduce the same thing you're seeing but did you see either of these 2 in the results? They are other listings that exist at that address.

According to the website for these guys, they appear to have moved. Can you confirm? I can update the listing and that's one less you have to compete with. If they're the one you are seeing, it might even get you unfiltered.

K I updated the listing so we'll see if that helps. As far as why the other guy outranks you, there isn't a way for me to answer that with any confidence without spending a couple hours analyzing what he's doing SEO-wise and comparing it to you. 

 

If you are seeing both of those listings for Dustin (Both his practitioner and his practice listing) together in the search results, I could ask Google to combine them since he is a solo practitioner and should only have 1 page total. This might cause yours to become unfiltered.

 

Let me know in a few days if you see any changes.
