Hello, 

I have read the other posts but my issue it my business doesn't show even if I click 'more locations'. y listing is verified, and I've done just about everything in the articles I've read (complete info, buiz hours, photos, etc). I've even managed to get a few reviews (lucky me). 

Company info as follows;

Align Local

Howell, Mi 48843

517-881-9064

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Align+Local/@42.1722442,-92.892408,5z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x88...

www.alignlocal.com

 

 

Address incomplete since I have a home office.

Hello Anna, 

 

There are some google guidelines that need to follow to show up in google. 

I am not sure if you are aware of that. 

https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en

In order to qualify for a Google My Business listing, a business must make in-person contact with customers during its stated hours.

And there are some criteria for ineligible businesses. 

 

If I am right, I cannot see a specific office location in your website. May be it is the issue. 

I would recommend adding your office location in the website. 

I am not sure if there is anything else related to this. 

 

Thanks

@Anaswara

you seem not read the info @Anna N gave she runs a home based office (and seem running it from this home not servicing at her home any customers in person)

 

Nevertheless you made a good point as Anna is in fact not able to meet her customers in person daily in a service area of about 500 miles radius.

@Anna N

We know from experience that for just this reason Google penalized such "huge radius" service area bsuinesses by kind of "zero ranking"

 

This is the reason nobody will find you.

 

reduce your radius to <<35 miles

The address is hidden because it is a home office and I don't want people
driving to my home, haha! This is an option when setting up a GMB page (to
hide the street address). So, to my knowledge it should NOT be because the
address is hidden...
