Why do I need to have Google re-crawl my business for it to show up in results?

When I initiate a Google "crawl" my business (Thermal Pest Control) will show up in a "bed bug exterminator" search couple of days later. In about a week or two the same search will not display my business until I initiate another Google crawl. Why does this keep happening?

Hi Phillip

 

Are you talking about the right hand side Knowledge panel not showing up, or something else?

No, I am not referring to the right side Knowledge panel. I am referring to a Google internet search using key words that are, and have been, relevant to my business. When I search (as a customer would), using key words, from my Business address, my business will often not show up. I then will initiate a Google crawl request and within a day or so the business search will yield my business in the search results. I must do this "crawl" approximately once a week. Is this manual crawl process necessary in order for Google to stay current on, and display, local businesses in a local search?

Hi Phillip

 

I think I know what you are talking about, but just to prevent back and forth forum messages can you provide a screenshot of where you see your results and one where you do not see them?
