My business is not showing up on Google Maps or Google Search when searched by keywords

Hi,

 

I have a Design Consulting business, called Shft, that provides a turnkey renovation service to homeowners.

 

I created our Google My Business Page a few months back, but I am still not having any luck with our ranking on Google Search or Google Maps. As far as I understand I have ensured that all our company information is relevant and up-to-date regarding the name, address, contact number and website. However, when I search for 'Shft' on Google Maps it automatically changes the search criteria to 'Shift' and says 'Showing results for Shift. Search instead for Shft', therefore the search does not yield any results unless I click to manually change the search criteria (there are also only 5 results for 'Shift' in our local area so it's not like we are competing to outrank hundreds of similar results). I would really appreciate any assistance you could provide so that we can at the very least show up in the ranking. Please see our business details below for more information:

 

Full business name: Shft

Current address: 28-30 High Street, Guildford, Surrey, United Kingdom, GU1 3EL

Telephone number: + 44 (0)1483 900560

Website: www.shft-ltd.co.uk

Google Maps Url: https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Shft/@51.2349653,-0.5779147,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x4875d0...

 

 

Furthermore, we have a competitor that is ranking well and I am curious to find out the full list of categories they are using, would you be able to assist? Can you please let me know what categories Opun are using (https://opun.co.uk/)?

 

Kind Regards

Thanks for your help Helmut,

 

Still not getting any luck if I simply just search for "Shft", but if I add the postal code then it comes up so guess that will do for now.

Furthermore, we have a competitor, Opun, and I am curious to find out the full list of categories they are using for Google My Business, would you be able to assist? Can you please let me know what categories Opun are using (https://opun.co.uk/)?

 

Thanks.
