I am running a verified business named Spray Me Golden.It is a Airbrush Tanning business in Wichita, KS. I was pretty high up on the list on Google Maps when searching for spray tanning, spray tan, spray tanning near me, spray tanning Wichita, KS, etc. I just noticed the other day that suddenly, when I typed in the same key words, My business is no longer showing up on the map, and on the list as well.Please help!

It's on the list, just further down. Google did an algorithm update last week that changed a ton of stuff and it doesn't appear to be in your favor. Your homepage of your website doesn't rank organically at all for "spray tanning wichita" so I can see why you'd experience a drop.

 

As well, your mobile site has a popup that appears to be covering most of the screen, which Google is about to penalize sites for: http://www.thesempost.com/googles-new-mobile-interstitial-popup-change-applies-page-level/

 

The website has lots of speed issues: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spraymegolden.com%2F&ta...

 

I don't even see an optimized title tag on the homepage of the site so I'd suggest reading some of these articles if you want to learn more about how to get your site and listing to rank better:
