Hi

 

I verified my business recently but it still doesnt show when I search for type of business in my area... I get lots of other apart from my own.

Im guessing it might take a while for my business to show?

 

thanks

 

Mark

Hi @Mark J

 

You are visible in Maps but filtered out due to lack of authority.

 

Search >> photographer clydebank

 

You do not appear in listings, but zoom in once and you finally appear.

This tells me you are being filtered out do to lack of authority.

 

See how Google ranks business pages

 

Positions are also linked to organic positions of your linked website. And here you have a major problem because your website does not even rank for your full name and address.

At the most basic level you should at least have your Business Name in the sites <title>

 

This is what your title is set as:

 

<title>photographer,clydebank,web design,glasgow,website design</title>

 

I would recommend reading: local SEO and your business visibility

Hi @Mark J

 

What don't you understand?

 

In my post I showed you that you are Live in Maps.

 

But I also explain why you are so far down in the rankings.
