Help Needed to Make My Google Business Appear!

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello! 

 

I am a hypnotherapist in the Forest of Dean - Dean Hypnotherapy. When I google hypnotherapy in the Forest of Dean, one business comes up on Google Business - Forest of Dean Hypnotherapy - and no mention of my business. So when you look up the area, you get that one business and not all the hypnotherapists in the Forest of Dean.

This doesn't seem to happen in other areas of the country, where a business has named themselves after the area, you still get the Google Business pages for the other hypnotherapists. You only see my Google Business page if you look up Dean Hypnotherapy, but add the word Forest and it disappears. And I don't even count when you look up the county, Gloucestershire!

 

All assistance greatly appreciated, and then some, Graham

please provide the URL of the business page in question as you will get it in browsers address bar after having clicked the link "MANAGE LOCATION" in your dashboard for the page.

Hi @Dean H

 

I'm not sure why anybody should get you searching for  hypnotherapy in the Forest of Dean

 

But I can tell you getting you on a  search for  Hypnotherapy Service near Mitcheldeann as hypnotherapy SERVICE is your category.

Many thanks Helmut! It's good to know I appear when you type NEAR MITCHELDEAN, but I want people to see my Google Business page (along with the other gentleman's of course) when they search FOREST OF DEAN HYPNOTHERAPY, which is the search most use in the area, and I am in the Forest of Dean! Am I excluded simply because of the other business's name?

Nobody knows the secrets of Googles ranking algos

 

Learn more about "Ranking of local results on Google"

And study this great article provided by MOZ 
And here  from a googler (30th Nov 2015) "How do you optimize your Google My Business listing?"
