My Business Name Does Not Show Permanently on Google Maps.

Hi, I would be very grateful if somebody would be able to help me please. I registered my business about four weeks ago on Google + (Riverview dog grooming, Wick, Bristol), if I search the business name on Google maps everything comes up as it should but I cannot understand why my business name does not show up over the address when just looking over the area on Google maps. I have tried to find the answer in this forum & the internet but have not been able to find the answer. Other business names show up in black writing permanently on Google maps, not sure why mine doesn't.

Many thanks

Beth

I suppose you are talking about this business page: https://plus.google.com/102297720056544083129 - right?

Reading your topic "My Business Name Does Not Show Permanently on Google Maps" I also suppose you are talking about a place label for your business.

Please learn more about Place Labels https://support.google.com/business/answer/6056435

 
It is Google Local algorithms that choose what business listings are shown as Place Labels and it is not possible for business owners to request inclusion of the business listing as a Place Label. There is also nothing business owners can do with their business listings to ensure that their businesses are displayed as a Place Label on Maps and Earth.

Hi Beth,

it sounds like you are talking about Place Labels - unfortunately these are driven by an algorithm and there is no way to manually apply them.

This support article provides a bit more information on them: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6056435?hl=en
