Hi! Please, help: my Svetlana Brezitskayan Taideateljee shows only on my personal PC. My friends cannot see it. It doesn't show on Google Map when searching in category Art Gallery (or taidegalleriat in Finnish language)  or searching just the location. On my PC it shows only on larger scale map, and the sign is grey instead of red as other galleries located nearby have. Something's wrong. Please, help!

Hi Svetlana,

I'm seeing your business in the results. When typing in "art gallery Turku, Finland" you're number 14 in Google maps, and your icon is red, same as everyone else's. I didn't see you there when searching with my location set in Turku though, but I did still see you appearing when someone looked up your business name directly. I also saw your business appearing when someone typed in your address.

Google has a very complicated algorithm for deciding which businesses to show, and how high they appear. Your business appears to be set up correctly to me at least, if you would like your gallery to start appearing more I think it will just take some promotion. That might mean getting some reviews, making sure your gallery information is present and accurate on other important Finnish business directories, it might mean getting relevant, local sites to link to your site, and so on.

James, thank you very much for the reply and helpful advice! I understand what you mean. Of course, I would wish my business to show on location. I think people who already know about my place (who do a direct search) are able to find the way to it anyway. But I it would be great to get those who are not aware about me yet. Also, when one searches in Finnish language (taidegalleriat Turku) my icon is grey, not red. But as I understood it depends on my promotion level and impossible to improve. It's OK then. Thank you again!
