Google Maps Listing Not Showing up for Brand Term and Business Name

Hi,

 

I added a business listing to Google My Business recently and got it verified through a postal mail, the map listing was appearing on google search result page for the registered business name (Flinto Learning Solutions and Flinto Learning Solutions Pvt. Ltd.), I changed the name of the business in the listing from Flinto Learning Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (registered business name) to Flintobox (brand name) to make it appear for the brand name.

 

Now, It isn't appearing for both the brand term and the registered business name in the past few days. I verified the business on December 16th, 2015.

 

Here is a link to G+ Local page - https://plus.google.com/110320285096016940489/posts

 

Please let me know how I can make the local map listing appear for both the brand name and the registered business name when searched on Google.co.in.

Hey,

Review on your Google My Business page is the write answer, so ask your clients, friends & other Circle friends to right some positive review with 4 & 5 stars to your brand.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the quick reply and tips. Is there any other possibility why this might have happened.

I would also add a link to your business page >> https://plus.google.com/110320285096016940489/about

 

In your contact page >> http://flintobox.com/contact

 

Under phone number you could add >> Location: Google Map

 

Or add an embed map

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d3888.579392531273!2d80.22888331482166!3d12.934732990880024!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x3a525c57c6920675%3A0x885249adf76a2332!2sFlintobox!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1451994213058" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

This way on the contact page, Google makes the connection with the full business name as listed on contact page

Hi all, sorry to jump in but @Amit Y please don't follow @Brian Nibiru 's advice re reviews. You should ONLY ask people who've actually done business with you leave a review, not your family / friends / Google circles.

 

If you ask people who've not done business with you to leave a review you are breaking Google's guidelines and you may end up being reported / penalised which means your page will continue to stay hidden!

 

In addition to @Tim Capper's advice, I noticed that you are a subscription based business - sending out education boxes to children (which is a great idea!). Do customers actually come to your business location or is that simply your headquarters? If customers don't come to your location then you should not list the full address on your Google business page.

 

To remove the full address you need to edit the address details in your dashboard and only check the box that says you serve customers at their location.

Hi Priya,

Thanks a lot for your suggestions, customers do not come to our business place, its our workplace or headquarters. I am still not able to find the maps on the right side of the search when I search for our brand name "Flintobox", please help me on this.
https://www.google.co.in/search?q=flintobox

However I can find it when I search for "+flintobox" and some of the other combination of brand terms, can you let me know why this happens.
