Hello,

 

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

 

legal recruiter Washington DC

Washington DC legal recruiter
legal recruiters Washington DC
Washington DC 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:

@Roger C

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

I'm not sure there are any Google SEO guidelinen promising any business will rank in the three pack for ever and I'm not sure there is a Google Guideline at all telling user what and how to optimize their ranking.

 

This is what Google tells you about ranking:

I btw get your business at ranking positive five - pretty good IMHO:

Hello Tim Capper

Thanks for the reply.

But we need these below 4 keywords in top 3,

legal recruiter Washington DC
Washington DC legal recruiter
legal recruiters Washington DC
Washington DC legal recruiters

Previously we were in top 3, So please suggest needful steps for above 4 keywords only.

Thanks
Roger

Hey Roger

Business appear in the 3 pack based upon their determined relevancy. This is created by content and structure on site. Not the business page.
