Can not find my business while searching

Chocolate Boutique

3465 Brodhead Rd, Monaca, PA 15061



My business has been verified. We are new in town and the previous shop in our place (Chocolate Creations) shows up when you search for it as permanently closed. When I search for candy stores or chocolate stores near me  or in Monaca, it will not show up. Even if I type in "Chocolate Boutique Monaca" it will not show up and the first one that pops up is in North Carolina. How can I make my business pop up when people search for it? I don't want to do an ad, but I think it should pop up if they are typing in that specific information.. Please help if you can! Thank you!

Hi @Tracy M


If you log into your account dashboard you will probably find that it is not verified, and has been suspended :


With only the 1 word separating the business : Creations >> Boutique

Google probably assumed this was the exact same business ( address and tel number ) and suspended it as a duplicate.



Please contact business support:


because they are exact apart from one word, I suspect business support will ask you to begin a transfer of ownership on the existing business page.
