Hello.  I am new to this so please bear with me.  I added and verified my business back in July of 2016, so now, when I search for my business name, it is showing up with a red marker.  However, when I am just looking at the google maps, all the other business in my building come up my business does not.  Would someone explane or advice on how to mark my business permanently?

 

Business Name: Prizant Law

Address: 118-21 Queens Blvd, suite 603, Forest Hills, NY 11375

Phone: 718-407-0871

URL: www.prizant-law.com

Hi @Svetlana P

 

I can see your marker for your name.

But when I search just by address, this one appears before you do.

This I assume is because they are within the same #suite and therefore are taking precedence over your listing for the address.

Thank Tim, do you know how can i fix this?

Also, below is the link and screenshot of what i was referring to:  the marker exists when you search by name, however the business is not listed when you just looking at google maps (like "Queens Law Associates" or "Friends Coffee Shop")

Hi @Svetlana P

 

As I said before, I believe it is to do with this business that apparently is in the same suite as you?

Do you share offices with other attorneys?

Hi Tim,

 

Yes, there are several law firms located in the same suite.

Hi @Svetlana P

 

In that case you will need to build your online authority over theirs.
