We service multipule service locations and when i search plumber in Vail Colorado we dont come up on google maps but if i type in plumbers in Edwards Colorado we show up. I changed the location setting to a 30 mile radius witch covers all the locations that we service but it still does not show up when i add town names. is there any way to fix this.

Hi there,

Google's algorithm has shifted to be very local-focused and now will show verified business on the maps that MOST CLOSELY match the search query. In your case, Google knows your business is not the closest or most relevant for someone searching Vail since you are 5+ miles away. It is very difficult to know exactly what to do to start ranking there but you can take steps on your website to start optimizing for both Edwards and Vail keywords using structured data. You can also optimize your Google+ page and listing with relevant keywords for your most serviced towns/cities.
