Greetings!

 

I was hoping someone could help me. My business was verified about a month ago and at first, my business was shown in the google local results. However, after making some edits to my wesbite, I cannot find my business in the local listing anymore.

 

Business name: Mona Lisa Bridal Gallery

Business address: 8099 Weston Rd, Unit 2, Woodbridge,ON L4L 1A6

Telephone Number: (647)210-5947

Google+ URL: https://plus.google.com/+Monalisabridalgallery

 

Any help that can be provided is greatly appreciated!

@Mona Lisa B

how do you try searching it?

 

I get you for a name search like "Mona Lisa Bridal Gallery near woodbridge" with a Knowledge Graph:

And I get you with google.ca for a category search like for "Bridal Shop near Woodbridge ON" on Page two of the search results:

@Mona Lisa B

 

this is really very weird using www.google.ca 

 

I also don't get you for "Bridal Shop Woodbridge" 

But I get you for "Bridal Shop Woodbridge ON"

 

Shouldn't google.ca know "Woodbridge" and "Woodbridge ON" refer to the same location and then provide the same results - or are there more cities/towns "Woodbridge" in Canada?

 

Will ping a Canadian TC for her opinion & insights: @JoyHawkins

Hi Helmut,

I dont believe there are other towns in Canada named Woodbridge. Woodbridge is a town in the city of Vaughan, Ontario. But basically most people use town names for addresses in this area.

Thank you again for all your help!

@Mona Lisa B

what a surprise!!!

 

I get you without any problems on  google.ca for "Bridal Shop Vaughan" - on top of page two of all results:

Now my only hope is @JoyHawkins can shed some light why  we get your for on  google.ca for "Bridal Shop Vaughan"  but not on  google.ca for "Bridal Shop Woodbridge".

I can't explain this :-(

@Mona Lisa B - your listing was missing a city on MapMaker (Woodbridge is the sublocality, Vaughn is the city). I just added Vaughn in there nad will see if that helps.
