map listing suddenly got kicked off the search results

After 8 years of operation my Business (Bondi Beach Chop Shop) has fallen off keyword map searches.
I have dedicated years to my google presence and even use adwords but can't work out what has happened.

 

Can anyone help?

Interesting. I have called for reinforcements to take a look. 

 

Could you do me a favor and go into your Google My Business, edit your listing (change anything) and resave it?

@Mike Blumenthal & @Bondi Beach C

 

I get the  business listed on second page of all results for "Hair salon near bondi beach NSW australia":

Yeah "Germany first" happens already  - America is still expecting to become first

 

I btw get the KP too (on a name search though):

@Mike Blumenthal

me neither for your link  hair salon bondi beach

But get it 12th position for "hair salon near bondi beach NSW"

 

"near" often does the trick.

Btw not in this case - was enforced to add "NSW" also (from my German end)

Thanks guys,

Completely heart breaking as I was always No2 on maps on any keyword search.

Yes I did that yesterday. I resisted new images.

A homewares shop has opened next door in the building and has listed the same address '2a jaques Ave' so I'm wondering if this could have confused algorithms..
So I updated my address to read 3/2a Jaques Ave to see if that changed anything.

Well who knows.... but here are some suggestions

 

1- Change your title tags business name on your site so that they reflect the name "Bondi Beach Chop Shop" rather than Chop Shop Bondi Beach and be sure that your name, phone and address is on every page particularly the home and about us pages (http://www.thechopshop.com.au)

2- Add in internal link to the about us page using the "Bondi Beach Chop Shop" name

3- Continue to get reviews at 3rd party sites

4- do something in the community that garners you links to your site like partner with a not for profit to give free haircuts to the unemployed...

5- Leverage those partnerships to get mentions and articles in the local press

6- Consolidate your two websites by permanently redirecting one to the other.

ie redirect this site http://thechopshops.com/index.php to this one http://www.thechopshop.com.au This will increase the strength of your main site. 

 

Question: Is there another hair salon at your same address?
