Google Maps search issue

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Business Name: Alissa DeLucca Photography

Address: 9540 Lancaster Place, Boca Raton, FL 33434

Phone- 954 294 3388

Maps URL - only shows my city and not my street address

Website: www.alissadeluccaphotography.com

 

My business is verified. All my information is added to my google business account. If you search my business by name, it comes up but only shows the city, not my address. Searching my keywords I do not rank at all and I am wondering if it is because my address is not populating properly. I have read and followed the following article - https://support.google.com/business/answer/7091?hl=en

 

Any advice to get my address to show properly and increase my visibility is welcomed. Thanks!

Hi @Alissa D

 

Your listing is correctly set with the full address hidden. This is the appropriate way for a home-based business to be displayed so I would not change it. And even if you show your full address it wouldn't boost your rankings.

You can archive my post, but why is it considered self-promotion? I was trying to ascertain why my address doesn't
show on google maps.


Thanks.

Sorry @Alissa D

 

That wasn't meant for you. Someone had added spam posts to your thread earlier and Helmut was removing them. His message was meant for them. Come back to the forum if you need help. :)
