My business recently stopped showing up under "bail bonds" search in Auburn, CA. It still appears if searched by "Waxham Bail Bonds".

Probably because this is also the address of the Auburn Branch of the Golden 1 Credit Union. Your website has the address of Joshua Waxham Bail Bonds - 11768 Atwood Rd #23 Auburn, CA 95603 and Google will parse and attempt to match the address in GMB with your website. Recommend you reconcile ASAP before you get removed entirely,

Thanks for your help Phillip! Everything has been updated and corrected since June when we moved to our new location but still not showing up in maps under "bail bonds Auburn" search.

It looks like you've got everything in place - at the correct map resolution, you show up perfectly. It also appears you have your address correct in your citations.

Now you have to do straightforward SEO - your site needs to be a better quality site than your competitors. There are a lot of ways to do that - create quality content to start. You competition has more content, higher-quality content, more backlinks, etc.

You might want to start with Google's suggestions - see (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6001093). Put yourself in the shoes of your potential clients when you think of content. What should family members know? How does the process work in your county? Why should use you rather than all of your competitors? Finally, why should your page appear higher than all of the other pages?

Thanks for your input sir! I knew we wouldn't be on top of the map results but a lot of the time we aren't showing up at all on the map when "bail bonds Auburn" is searched. It's like we don't exist unless searched by exact name.
