My business name & full address Google Search bar

My Google my business was verified this week I entered the code and is appearing.  However to bring up the business in google you have to search my business name or my full address in the search bar otherwise nothing comes up.  I have had my customers call me and say we can't find you.  If you could let me know if this is just short term, is there something I can do.  My business name is Wedding Venues and you have to search Wedding Venues 187 Gills Lane Brunkerville for anything to come up. Noone is going to search my name and full address in google. Any assistance or advice you can give me as I am not very knowledgable on these issues.  Thanks so much Sharyn..

Hi Sharyn

 

I had to be the bearer of bad news, but i don't believe this site is eligible for a local business page.

Your business seems to be purely an online only business. Do you conduct face to face business ?

 

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

 

 

As for not appearing you do.

Thanks Sharyn, that clears that up.

 

Perhaps you should make that clear in your contact us page, the 1st thing I saw was for online specific only. "listing site" etc

 

I have already shown that you appear for local, which is what it is doing.

 

As for appearing for your set radius, that wont happen and I don't know why GMB allows people to set massive radius's. 

 

From experience anything outside of 40 miles, does not appear.

 

Try and post a couple of times a month, this helps Google to machine learn based upon your :

business description

posts

website

 

what your business does and how to show it for relevant local searches

Hi

 

Making Posts with geolocated pictures of an event will help to establish your service area. With permission of course where applicable.

 

Clients posting the same in social will help as well.
