Business is not showing up when searched in Google Map

Full business name : Port Mower World

Current business address : UNIT 3 / 25 Central Road ,Port Macquarie, NSW 2444(Australia)

Current telephone number : 02 6581 5527

 

I was searching for business called "Port Mower World" in the address "UNIT 3 / 25 Central Road ,Port Macquarie, NSW 2444(Australia)" in Google Map But in my Search result I am not getting "Port Mower World".

 

Instead I am getting another business called "Port Mower Center" in address "16 Bellbowrie Street, Port Macquarie NSW 2444, Australia" which is close by.

 

And also when I try to reach "Port Mower World" using the Driving Direction link "https://www.google.com/maps/dir/'13.0833,80.28330000000005'/'Port Mower World'/" , that time also I am getting redirected to "Port Mower Center" business address.

 

Please let me know what is the issue here.

 

Thanks

I'm not sure:

Have you created for the business in question already a GMB listing through https://business.google.com/create ?

Hi @Tim,

Thanks for the information.
Is it not enough to locate a Business in Google Map just with latitude and longitude of the Business address?

And also is it mandatory to have a Business listed under Google My Business, for having the business in Google Map search results/getting driving directions.

Hi @Srinivasan k

 

No, in order to verify a business you need to use the full physical address. Google with then use that to provide driving directions.

Hi @Tim,

But I am not getting any search results when I try for search business called 'Port Mower World'' using its full physical address "Port Mower World,UNIT 3 / 25 Central Road Port Macquarie NSW 2444" in Google Maps.

So is it mandatory to have a Business listed under Google My Business, for having the business in Google Map search results/getting driving directions.

Hi @Srinivasan k

 

Yes, you have to have a business listing in GMB in order to get driving directions in Maps.

HI, I am the owner of Port Mower World & have been trying to fix this problem. I have verified the business & it still does not work, although I did just receive an email from Google stating that it can take 24hrs for it to be updated, so I will check tomorrow

Thanks
