Ok - I am really struggling - I cannot seem to find my business in the google local results.  - I am Ronco Communications we have 15 locations and have been a domain forever.  I cannot seem to get listed for business telephone systems in or local results.  If I google business telephone systems buffalo, ny - we do not come up. I have clicked "add a business that isn't showing here" to try and add us to that list but, it says succeeded but, 2 days later, I am still not showing up.  Please help!  :)  THANK YOU!

Hi @Liz S

 

If I search for Buffalo, NY >> you are on page 3

I see that you are outside of Buffalo proper.

If i search within your area, you appear position 2.

Ranking a business for a location that you are not actually in, is pretty difficult. Take a look at Ranking factors of business pages.

Hi @Tim Capper - can you please have a look at my post? I've posted it 3 times and no-one has responded. It's really discouraging at this point! Thank you in advance. Thread here: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Basics-for-Business-Owners/GMB-Listing-Removed-from-Keywor...
