Few weeks ago my business was listing in top 3 local packs with the following keywords


legal recruiter atlanta

atlanta legal recruiter
legal recruiters atlanta
atlanta legal recruiters


But suddenly the ranking disappeared. I have optimized as per Google guidelines and I don't know why the listing has gone suddenly.


Can anyone please help me out and suggest what additional steps i should take to rank in top 3 local packs.


Below is my Google maps listing URL:,-84.3405417,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3...

Hi @Roger C


At a cursory look, you seem to be out of the boundary that Google considers to be Atlanta

When you look at all the bushiness appearing above you, when you hover over them and see where they are on the map, they are all closer within the Atlanta boundary.


You only have a handful of business citations, I would look at increasing these, together with reviews on your business page.
