Thanks Tim, the main keyword that we are not showing up for is "basement waterproofing" which is listed as the main business and the Google AdWords campaign is optimized for.  A main competitor is ranking much higher on maps with significantly fewer reviews and less of a complete profile.  Is there a way to get back on the listing?

Hi @Everdry W

 

As @Helmut Geissler says you are appearing 8th for basement waterproofing. We have already established that you appear well for main category, so why less for basement waterproofing.

 

There are a couple of things you could try to improve the signals that are being sent to Google.

 

1) When I search the address and look at Maps, I do not see your business PIN marker. The business that does appear is complete automotive solutions, which happens to be at the same address.

 

You could consider adding your unit # into the second line of the address, to differentiate yourselves. 12 Pixley Industrial Pkwy #34,  Rochester, NY 14624

 

If you do this remember to add it to your website.

 

2) The address is spell't incorrectly on website (Pixely) as opposed to Pixley

 

3) consider adding structured data markup to your website https://schema.org/LocalBusiness

Hi all,

 

I have made the changes and it still is not showing up, even when I zoom out of the area.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Everdry W

 

So we are dealing with an algorithm here and Google does not disclose what they are, so we have to work systematically.

 

Your PIN marker is in the middle of a road, not at location.

Also try checking for inconsistencies with : moz.com/local/overview

Great thank you i will make that change.

 

Also, I was wondering if a potential issue was that it says "Gates" in the description.  When I go into edit the location, the Gates disappears and I can only see Rochester. How could I edit this?
