GMB doesn't show up anymore for relevant keyword search. Tips or Assistance Needed.

Angry Pelican Charters

Blue Water Marina, 57th Place West, Oak Island, NC 28465

(910) 742-0296

https://plus.google.com/+Angrypelicancharters/

 

I work for an agency that helps with this company's website and online marketing. We originally were seeing very good results through our GMB page appearing in the local map pack. Especially for the keyword "fishing charters oak island NC", but now we are nowhere to be found on the map at all. There are only 4-6 charters in the area and we don't show up on a lot of keywords. However we do show up for "charters oak island nc".

 

We spoke with a Google specialist and were told that our page was optimized very well, and that they didn't have any answers as to why it would not show up.

 

Let me know if you can help me or give me some guidance as to what I need to do.

 

Thanks

@Ken T

I guess its an issue bases on a bad address specification

This are my findings:

 

You specified a very unspefic street address. To say it exactly you haven't specified any street address at all.

 

Take a look on MapMaker:

It should specified instead (at least IMHO) as below:

The specification "Bue water Marina" is fine in the address line but the street address should be specifed in the street address line.

 

What leads me to consider your issue (not getting found on a category search) as caused by the address specification?

I don't get you for "Fishing Charter near Oak island nc"

 

But I get you for "Fishing Charter near Blue Water Marina nc":
