Hi,

 

My business does not come up on google when I key word search or in maps, I have read the article and my business is set up accordingly through the my business app. We have more reviews than most others in the area. We come up when you search the full business name but otherwise we do not come up at all.

 

Business is: Notthern Exposure Art and Framing located in Norlane Vic

Website: http://business.google.com/website/northern-exposure

 

Any help would be appreciated!

They are located much closer to the center to Geelong while Norlane is 8 km to the north. Local search is about delivering local search results. Google in a number of their recent algo updates has dramatically reduced the radius of the search IF there are enough relevant results within the smaller radius.

 

However all is not lost... as most searches are now mobile most searchers are NOT entering the geo modified like Norlane or Geelong along with their search for framing shops... and if they are closest to you they will find your result. So if you are in a neighborhood that likes and uses framing you should be ok.

When I search for picture Framing Norlane Vic you come up just fine. 

 

Exactly what searches are you worried about?

Thanks for looking into it Mike. My competitors all come up when you search "framing geelong" or even "picture framing geelong".
