Google Maps listing not visible on default map view

I have my business listed on google maps however (places, not exactly sure what google calls this now)

 

I don't have a physical location but my business covers a rather large area but when I search for my industry, my city my business doesn't appear until I zoom in close to my address. I'd like my business to appear on the default zoom level so when someone searches for my services they see my business without any zooming. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your reply Sir,

1: Visions Photo Booth
2. 2015 Bentwood Ct, Wilmington, DE 19804 (I don't serve customers at my location and I should note that Wilmington has multiple zip codes, this zip code is actually the outer most area that is considered Wilmington for mail purposes)
3. 302-689-8127
4. https://plus.google.com/+Visionsphotobooth/posts


I noticed if I search google for "Photo Booth Wilmington, DE" I need to zoom in rather far before I start showing up on the list, but if I search "Photo Booth Stanton de" I'm first on the list. Is this because my address is "technically" not in the city of Wilmington? It is in Stanton, Delaware but our post office and addresses are managed by Wilmington City. I need to be seen by people looking for my services in the Wilmington area so I'm not sure how to correct this or even if it is possible.

 

EDIT: To add to this, I've also noticed that businesses from outside the area (Philadelphia) show on the map even though Philadelphia isn't in the map view at all?

Thanks again for your help.

Rob

Hi

 

Google have moved to searches being on a mobile location enabled device.

 

You need to include 'in' or 'near' in a desktop or laptop non SIM device.

 

https://www.google.co.uk/search?client=firefox-b-ab&dcr=0&ei=o2psWu3bLorHgAaAzLywBw&q=Photo+Booth+in...

 

You show OK for all 4 possible combinations.

 

Andrew.
