Hi Brian,

When you setup your listing did you select "I serve customers at my business address"? If you did not, then you are likely classified as a service-area business and a marker will not show on the map. Try selecting this even though you are likely a service business if you desperately want your map pin to show. Here is more information about these listings

It's your location which is set to Kensett, IA, United States and not a mailing address.

I have pin at 200 elm Street in Kensett, ia, my little town has P.O. Boxes for everyone but Google dings my score if I have a P.O. Box. So i have changed my address and have deleted all references to a Box on my website. I am trying to target the Mason City, IA area but Google hamstrings me because I actually have a address in a different town only 13 miles away. I do and tell everyone to Google and Bing "janitorial services Mason city" and scroll through and click on my site, it is raising my page on the site searches but still barely getting on the business thingy that appears first (some times I am on it and sometimes I am not. I have made the pin edit many times to the inside bottom right part of my block where my shop is at. 200 El Street I. Kensett, IA Moonlight Floors & Maintenance.

Thank you for anything you can do,
Brian Hahn, owner
