Not showing up on Google Maps

Hi there,

 

I received my verification code last week and did what I needed to do with it straight away but my business location isn't showing as a location on Google maps yet.

 

This is my google plus page: https://plus.google.com/110344478868589093751/about

 

Have I done something incorrectly?

 

Thanks all.

You should (in the address part of your dashboard) check the setting "I also serve customers at my business address".

I also strongly recommend you to reduce your service area very much.

 

There is no advantage and no better ranking for your biz having a service area for all of UK and Ireland and parts of Europe

as your business shows up on  a search for its name

as well as for a search for your category near Anglesey ("Arborist and Tree Surgeon near anglesey")  I can't really understand what kind of help you are seeking.

 

Please elaborate it.

It shows up in name but downs have a marker on the map (a red dot for our location). Also when you go into map view there is no button for 'directions' only for 'website'.

@Ed T:

there is a very trivial answer for your additional questions:

 

showing you again this screen capture:

It shows your business is a service area with hidden address 

Such business can't get a place label nor directions to it as this would decover your hidden address
