We have been top in the google maps bubble for the past year for the search terms "web design macclesfield"

Recently we completely disappeared.

We realised that there may have been conflict as we share the same address as another business called ADO media.

We rectified the address but we have still not returned to the maps bubble.

Google do not seem to be able to help and they say that we need to optimise our Google + page.

We've done everything that they ask but we don't seem to be getting anywhere and haven't returned.

There was an article written recently about an update to the local ranking algorithm. It sounds like you might have been impacted by it. I recommend checking this article out -

Thanks so much for taking the time to send that over.

Having quickly skimmed it it does look relevant to us.

I just want to know, I suppose, if we will make it back in there at some point?

Google themselves don't eve recognise that this is an issue.
