Business Name Not Showing on Google Maps Pin

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our business name is not showing next to the red pin when I Google our address:
5230 N. Clark St., Chicago IL 60640

Our business is Gus Giordano Dance School and our business has been verified, we've been in business for years with stellar reviews. How can we get our business name to appear? Many of our clients Google our address and mentioned they were unsure it was correct because our business name did not show. 

Adding a screenshot of our address showing but no business name.

Hi @Theresa D

 

So I Googled the address and the search results listed you at that address, the customer can then click the address to go to the address >> PIN marker marks the Address because that is what they searched for.

 

However Google does list you at the address.

You also have a pin label when searching for your Name

Because they are searching for an address and not a business name ( in your screenshot ) the PIN marker highlights the address.

 

You have to zoom right in to see the businesses using the address.

Hi @Theresa D,

The business is listed in the address info panel when searching on Maps for mobile and Maps for the desktop.

I do not know why it does not appear for you or your customers.

Here is what I see when searching for the address on Maps for the desktop.

Hi @Theresa D

 

As i mentioned in my post. You are searching for an address in your screenshot, that is why the PIN marker highlights the address.

 

Again, in my 3rd screenshot, I say that you have to zoom into the map to see the business in that location, because you searched for an address, not a business name.
