Hi,

 

1. Full business name: mbsolicitors.ie
2. Current business address: 237 Collins Avenue, Dublin, Co. Dublin, IE
3. Current telephone number: +353 01 5380084
4. Google+ URL:  https://business.google.com/u/1/b/106295204723190054043/dashboard/l/14203363095173200521?service=gmb...

 

When I google "solicitors dublin 9" our company site appears on the 1st page of google's results but the same query on google maps doesn't show our verified google maps location. How do we go about fixing this ?

 

Cheers

Eoin

Hi @Eoin B

 

Business pages have different ranking algos then organic search algos.

 

Business Page Ranking Factors

 

Other Issues, is the way you are presenting location signals to Google.

 

In your website, you have embedded some London address >> you should embed your own business page location.

 

This is yours:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2379.990660796186!2d-6.23606088416031!3d53.37921657998592!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x48670e386ccf9331%3A0x57401098390d1bbf!2sMBSolicitors!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1473533531927" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Next, your address on site, does not match your address on Google business page.

 

237 Collins Avenue, Whitehall, Dublin 9

237 Collins Avenue Dublin Northside Dublin

 

NAP ( Name, address, phone ) should always be consitant

 

Business Citations FAQ's

 

I would also add structured data markup to your site : https://schema.org/LegalService

 

but rectify your address and use the correct one in your structured data markup.

Thanks Tim,

I have submitted an update to our google+ business page address to match it up with the address on the website. And will review other business citations to ensure they have matching address information.

On the iframe code to pointed out, where did you get this code from ? It's not part of our company website source.

Also was wondering if we need to update the "Google My Business" address info to exactly match our desired address i.e. 237 Collins Avenue, Whitehall, Dublin 9. If we do need to update this address, do we have to go through the address verification process again (this took month's to resolve initially) ?

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Eoin
