Business not showing up in certain searches!

Not applicable

HI

 

I am a singing teacher.

 

When I search for Singing teacher in my town my business appears

But when I search for Singing Lessons in my town, it doesn't

Also is there any way i can extend the area, for instance if someone looks for singing teachers in nearby towns that my business will appear on list?

 

What do I need to do to make sure my business appears when people search for Singing lessons?  I spoke to someone at Google but they just said add photos, opening hours and reviews.  I have done this and it hasn't helped..

 

My details are

 

Corsham Singing Studio

12 SAwyers Crescent, Corsham

07866514209

Hi @

 

Google learns about what you offer from online sources, the main one being your website. It then takes what it understands your business offers and returns the business for searches based on what it understands you to offer.

 

Looking at your website, you have not optimised it, or even mentioned singing lessons. 

 

I would look at some basic website optimisation to get you headed in the right direction:

Thanks for your reply

 

I hadn't done anything with the website as I already have a website for my business..

Does this matter or is it something I have to do??

 

Thanks

Hi @

 

No, not the website feature in the business account, I was talking about your website:

http://www.corshamsingingstudio.co.uk/

 

I cant run through an entire SEO audit here, but your site does not mention singing lessons. Heck it does not even have a <title> to display in search results.

 

In fact Google has not event indexed your website yet. It looks like they only found it yesterday.

So grab a cuppa and spend 10 minutes reading that article.

 

Here is a starter guide from Google too:

This is for your Website.

Thanks Tim,

 

The search result link on your screen shot seems to be for an old version of the site..  if you just type Corsham Singing Studio into google the correct one comes up

 

I've remedied the Homepage which now says singing lessons on it!  I have also added SEO info onto the home page in website building thing.

 

Sorry I'm a bit green about this stuff, I'll have a look at the article

 

Thanks again
