Small Briefcase symbol on Google Maps
Hello, I have recently set up a My business account along with a few other Google services and have run into an issue with my google maps presents.
For some reason all the business's around me are highlighted on the map, even if I don't search for anything they all have a little briefcase symbol and their business name there, mine does not.
My business is verified and if I search for it the red location flag appears in the right place, but its not just their like all my competitors. I have a feeling its might have something to do with the type of My business account I have but am not sure.
It seems a little trivial but I'm worried I haven't set up my account properly, please help..
below is 2 pictures
the first showing business around me with their icons
the second after searching for my business..

Hello @Damian M
you seem referring to what Google calles "place labels"
Please read more about this stuff in here: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6056435?hl=en
Its all done algorithmically and there is no guarantee each business get such a "place label"
