Google Place Listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

We are curious, our google+ page is up to date, and we are coming in organic searches as #1, however. our business is not coming up at all on places/maps. Our #1 search would be "St Louis Park, MN Chiropractor" and we are no where to be found when we used to be between #1-#3 searches.

1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google+ URL

Hi,

Just a couple of points that I'd make:
1. Your map on the contact us page doesn't appear to be working. (or at least not for me - I just see the following:

I'd recommend using the embed code from Google's own listing of your business instead since not only does this build Google's trust in you, but also shows the number of reviews you have :) :

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d11291.878383488587!2d-93.345247!3d44.964611!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x0%3A0x558994261d155e40!2sWest+End+Chiropractic+and+Wellness!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sau!4v1462586572704" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

2. I could only find 3 citations for your business (apart from your website) in the first 3 pages of a Google search for your business name. I'd recommend increasing that number across the reputable directories in order to increase Google's level of trust in you as as local business.

 

3. Of the citations I did see (Yelp, Facebook) you include only three categories: Chiropractor, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, yet you list a lot more on the Google listing. I'd recommend reducing the number of categories on your Google listing to the ones that you're using across the rest of the internet and see what happens. 

You can always add more categories down the track, but having too many categories can sometimes trigger a spam alert in the algorithm.
