When search is by product + city (not using our name), we do not appear on map

hi guys, are we missing to add data somewhere?   by business name and city, yes we are already on google maps.

 

people will often search for product + city.   this search, in our case, shows other businesses on the map but not ours.  

 

neither the map link that appears in search results, nor a direct map search itself, shows our business.

 

any clues on why other businesses appear via the product / city search, but not ours?    thanks !!

 

specifics:    "suboxone + monroeville" and the business name is "rio health clinic"     on page 4 of search results you can see rio health mentioned, in a link from some site called 'usplaces.com'.   page 6, our google link shows!   https://plus.google.com/103110343096369864416/about

My two cents:

GoogleMyBusiness is not to find "products" or searching for products of a
certain business.

YOu should found on category searches though

no luck yet.


one advertising guy has told us we need to "buy words" and then we will appear on the map ! seems odd to me, given our searched business name / location do show the map! if he is right, we would have to pay to be on the map of a  'product + city' search !!
