My Business (Wishing Well Clinic & Rehabilitation Centre) won't show up when I google search my local area? Although I see several other businesses on the map when I search the area, mine does not show up. 


If I search for my business name specifically, then it shows up. 


Also, when I search massage therapist/massage therapy, again I do not show on the list. I have verified my listing and made map updates which have been published several times, but to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @Sako D


This question comes up a bit and has been answered in other threads such as this one.


In short -

There is a difference between the organic listings and map/business listings in Google, as well as reasons why each may/may not appear when searching for your exact business name or phone number Vs general category keywords.


Also, this video from Google gives a full explanation and covers some of the possible reasons in more detail: 

I can’t find my business on Google


To get your business listing appearing higher organically in search results, you are getting into the realm of SEO and you might be best to speak to a professional in your area for more advice.


I hope this is of some help.
