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

I have set up my business, Shotlife Studio, as a Wedding Photography business with Google My Business and verified it for Google Maps, but it does not show up on the map at all when I search basic keywords like "wedding photography Toronto".


My Google + account is, operating in Toronto.

Please advise what else I need to do to have my business showing on the map.

Hi @Shotlife S


First thing i noticed is how far your radius is set. Anything over 40 miles dilutes all the signals


This is your radius

This is the actual radius of Toronto, ON, Canada

Then your overall authority in the wedding photography space:


1) work on reviews

2) no sites referencing you, work on citations

3) no locality in your websites <title>

4) no schema / structured data on your site
