google maps

Hi,

 
I have recently added my business to google maps. If i search my business name my business comes up on the map, however if i type "personal trainer wirral", my business is not shown on the map. Can you explain why this is and how i would go about changing it. Another thing i have noticed is, i have verified my business address through post and this went fine, however when i search for my business it sometimes brings the wrong address up. I have gone into my business information and all seems to be ok so i don't understand how the address can be wrong?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks

Can you post the wrong address you see? I did some hunting, and it didn't look like there was any issues. If you post the wrong address though, it would make it easier to check. 

As far as why you're not showing well... my guess is it's because Google knows too little about your business. Virtually no other sites are talking about and linking to your website (backlinks), and I couldn't see any signage or anything for your business on Google Street view for your business (looks like there's a tire place there instead?), though there were a good number of citations at least (Yelp, Yell, etc.). I didn't see you showing up for personal trainer wirral anywhere, but you were something like number 15 for personal training wirral. So you're showing, just... way down the list. If you're curious about the kinds of things that go into whether or not you're ranking, here's a rundown of the different things that go into it:

The short end though... build more reviews, get someone experience to set up your website a little better (Your map isn't set up right, your NAP isn't on most pages, your schema is set up wrong, none of your images have alt/title tages, etc.) build some back links (there's a million opportunities to get your voice out there when it comes to health and fitness stuff, though helping you brainstorm on that is a little outside the scope of this question) and there might be some important UK citations you're missing that could help you out, but I only know US stuff there, so you'll have to do your own research on that one. 

Either way, good luck! Looks like you've got your Google my Business stuff set up right at least, so you've got a solid foundation to start building on, unless there's something I missed with that wrong address you mentioned seeing.

FWIW:

 

doing a search for "personal trainer near wirral" I get several businesses and among them (listed on page three of all results)  I get yours:

 

Bespoke Physique
 3 reviews · Personal Trainer
304 Cleveland St
 Birkenhead CH41 4JN, United Kingdom
 
+44 7594 007184

 

 

I dont get any other listing of  a personal trainer named as "Bespoke Physique" with any other address as the address you provided.

 

So I would like to get your search results showing Bespoke Physique with any other address as 304 Cleveland St.

Can you please provide a screen capture showing it wrong?
