Business Name: Full Lotus Yoga

Business address: 216 Erie Blvd East Suite A Rome, NY 13440

Phone number: 3156172904

Google + URL: https://plus.google.com/b/105867086778256175402/105867086778256175402

 

I recently added my business to google, after verifying my business it showed up in a google search for "yoga studios near me" "yoga studios rome ny" "full lotus yoga" "full lotus yoga rome ny" etc. I then updated my website and it was is no longer showing up in any of those search criteria. I saw that it could take 3 days for updates to your listing to appear and so I was waiting to see if my business would show up again but it has now been a week and it still does not show up in any of those searches, PLEASE HELP!!   Thank you!

For some reason I do not see the section on the right that you have, when I search it the right side is blank. I am more interested in having it show up when people in my area are looking for a yoga studio, so googling "yoga rome ny" or something of the like. Mine used to come up with the other 2 studios but now it does not.

Thank you for your quick response!

Hi Bianca, I'm located in Minnesota, searching "Yoga Rome New York" you are not on page one.  Time to review your competition and see how you might adjust you content/meta data to gain some visibility.

 

Also, I like to use this tool: https://www.brightlocal.com/local-search-results-checker/ it overrides IP address/search location and history.  Using this tool and searching Yoga in Rome NY you are in the snack pack, position #3, an enviable place to be!

In my opinion your biggest shortcoming is lack of meta title, meta description.  Also, your biggest competitor on page one Google is Just Breathe.  Notice they have a Facebook page, do you?  Have you built citation sources (Yelp, YP, etc?).  Notice the "Yoga Finder" web site, ask to get listed on this vertical to help drive visibility.

I guess my confusion is that it appeared under "yoga rome ny" but then I updated to add my website and it has not been listed since then.

Helmut's screen capture above illustrates the "Knowledge Graph" and I was able to recreate this result as well to research a bit on your behalf.  I selected the "website" button but it navigates to https://squareup.com/store/fulllotusyoga and throws an error. I asked you about, http://fulllotusyoga.net/ and at this web site the location address is 20365 Mack Ave. Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236 not Rome NY.
