Business name does not automatically appear on googlemap search

Hello

My business have been verified and now appear in Googlemap. However I have to type in my full business name i.e. "Charity Right Malaysia" and press enter for it to appear on map.

 

I was wondering why my business doesn't come up in the search bar in Google Maps when I search it? As in it doesn't auto populate. If I were about to type in our HQ i.e. "Charity Rig",  I am able to find our HQ ("Charity Right" at Bradford, UK) on the drop down search but couldn't see "Charity Right Malaysia".

 

1. Full business name: Charity Right Malaysia
2. Current business address: B8-1-3, Jalan Teknologi 2/1A, Signature Park, Kota Damansara 47810, Petaling Jaya, Selangor 
3. Current telephone number: +60361515952 
4. Google Maps URL: https://www.google.com.my/maps/place/Charity+Right+Malaysia/@3.1500594,101.5722803,17z/data=!3m1!4b1...
5. Website (if applicable)

Hi @Anis R

 

Just because you named the business listing as such, Google is determining the main Head office is the correct listing to display.

 

It probably has to do with the fact that you do not list a local phone number or an internal landing page to the charity information on the website.

 

Ergo, if someone is searching for this, Google display the head office because it can actually be contacted, which they assume the user want to do.

 

I would create a Landing page on site, or at least add all the details to this page:

http://charityright.org.uk/country/malaysia/   ( remove Blog, from title page )

 

Add the name, address, local tel number, office hours and embed the location map.

 

Embed for Map:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2037874.3458739207!2d101.51779928758361!3d3.97438901903115!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x31cc4efef35e8917%3A0x81e03b4124a9af9f!2sCharity+Right+Malaysia!5e0!3m2!1sen!2smy!4v1487432775169" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Once Google find this information, then it will more then likely provide the information that the user searches for because it can actually be contacted / interacted with.
