Google My Business Service area

Hi, although I have entered a number of service areas in our profile only one is showing in a search. When I've logged back in to edit my profile they are all showing so why does only one show in results?

 

Thanks

 

Kim

Hi

I've attached a screen shot which as you can see just gives Cramlington.
I'm fact we have 7 or 8 other areas which I've saved but they won't show up

Thanks

Kim

Hi Kim

The screenshot didn't stick unfortunately, but from what I can see, your business looks like it does not qualify for a Google My Business listing.

"The following businesses aren’t eligible for a local page:
An ongoing service, class, or meeting at a location that you don't own or have the authority to represent."

Edit:  Ah - see the photo now.

Hi

Now I'm confused. I explained what I did to Google during one of their live webinars during the Digital Garage programme. They explained that if we met at a location we did not own then we should use the service areas option which is what I have done.

Can you shed any light?
Kim

Fair enough, I'll get clarification.

Hi Kim

Just had clarification - seems the guidance you received missed the mark a bit, unfortunately.
So we're back to the first reply.
