James,

It looks like the listing is optimized and managed well. However, Google My Business listings are only one of the influencers (ranking factors) that drive organic local search on the main Search Results Page, Local Pack, and Maps.

A few things you can do to help.

1) Continue to get a steady pace of real reviews from customers
2) Have a look at your NAP consistency across the web

3) Take a look at your website and do some SEO optimization. Things like Schema Markup, etc.

You're asking a much broader question that can't really be answered with a technical Google My Business listing fix or optimization. Local search performance requires a much broader strategy, especially in a competitive space.

Hope this helps
Paul

Hello, the above has all been done. And that doesnt answer my question as
it was in 2nd place before this happened. It also remains in 2nd place on
the organic side of things. So some error is clearly happened here.

You have to realize that things are constantly changing, and with good reason from Google's point of view. They want to constantly test the quality of the results that they show because it's their job to make sure that customers get what they are looking for in the first few links. Point being, even if you do everything 100% right, you will see varying results over time.

Sure but doesn't make any logic. The company is in Cardiff and it's a
window cleaning business. You can't be anymore specific then that. The
photos are full , the description is accurate. All guidelines are adheared
to.
