Any help appreciated, we have a new whisky shop, based in Carlisle Cumbria.


We are the only actual whisky shop in Cumbria, but when searching Google for: 


'Whisky shop Cumbria'

or 'Whisky Shop Carlisle' 

or 'Whisky Carlisle / Cumbria' 


Our business does not come up as a business listing. We only come up as a business with directions etc when typing in our name - 'House of Malt' - Please help,


Thank you,

One thing I would try is changing the business category. Right now it's just "Shop". I would change it to "Off Licence", then give it some time and see if that makes an impact.


Here's an article about editing categories, if needed for reference:
