Hi, wondering if anyone can help me. I've recently opened a google my business account for a new removal company (U-Move Basingstoke) and I'm struggling to see how i can make it come up in searches for removal companies in my area (Basingstoke) My marker only comes up when i zoom right into my address or search certain words and the writings not in bold. My plan is that when you search "removal company basingstoke" my business comes up in the searches and on google maps. im scratching my head trying to figure out how its done!
many thanks in advance! My business phone number and address is Wicklow Close Basingstoke 01256962472!
