Hi there, my company is Stubbs Removers ltd and for some reason does not show in google places under keywords "removals Lytham" I have tried just about everything in My Businees but nothing seems to work, my site has been going for 16 years and I have a lot of links to it as well as reviews, even companies who are not trading anymore are displayed

 

Any Ideas ?

Ok @Andrew W

 

Your business page is plus.google.com/105903915381078782014

And its located in a little town called "Lytham St Annes" in Lacashire (have been there btw last Oct during a one week holiday)

 

Now and searching for "removals near Lytham St Annes" I get you on page three of all results and if  searching for "removals near Lytham" I get you o page four of all results:

The second lower ranked result reasonable as the official name of your town is "Lytham St Annesrather then just "Lytham"

Note: I very well know people in the Blackpool area of Lancashire just say  "Lytham" ;-)

Hi Andrew,

Are you still facing this issue? We are able to help with the Google My Business pages, so if you could also send that link along, I would be happy to investigate.

Thanks,
Liz

@Andrew W

 

I'm pretty sure @ElizabethP will not send you a mail.

She asked for a link of (or to) your "Google My Business pages" to publish it here.

She (or we Contributors) will then investigate more

Yes, thanks for clarifying, @Helmut Geissler!

 

@Andrew W, we need the Google My Business page URL in order to take a look. Thanks for sending!

Hi Helmut

Yes my Lytham page doesn't appear at in local searches however my Darwen page (as shown in the picture) shows up, Lytham and St annes used to be separate but merged in the 1920's, some of us still like to think it separate though.
