Yes, but you rank for [bee rescue melbourne] which on first landing on your site, it seems like that's the majority of the content there.

What kind of Ads are you running? I saw zero ads on Maps for [raw honey melbourne], but that may be related to my location?

 

You might want to develop additional content about raw, local honey on your homepage to your site. Raw is mentioned 3 times. Once in the body of the text, once as a link, and another as a byline. That tells search you don't think it is an important part of your business.

Sorry @Joel H for chiming into this thread of @Frankie S

 

From my point of view the listing @Frankie S is talking about is somehow "broken" in  case he meant this listing: https://goo.gl/maps/QX44sU1ovcE2

 

Why does it look broken?

 

It seems beeing a service area business (just showing the city and no address) but there is  no service area specified.

 

I would like to understand what address specifications have been specified by @Frankie S in his dashboard 

Frankie: can you please provide a screen grab of your dashboard in Edit modus showing the address and service area specifications for "Bee Rescue - Heidi Honey Hurstbridge"?

Thanks

on maps, we can see the us on when typing 'Raw Local Honey'...but not 'Raw

Hi  @Frankie S

 

 

This  GMaps link https://goo.gl/maps/Co5G3yiUwQH2 

shows now a service area listing with hidden address - its problem is the large radius of about 80 (or bit more) miles.

According our experience any Service area listing with an radius >> 35 miles is of no benefit and tends to zero ranking results.

Hi...have reduced radius to 66km for a week now, and significantly increased 'raw local honey' on the website a few weeks ago, but neither of these suggestions have solved the problem...we still cant find us on google maps when searching 'raw local honey melbourne'...please help
