Getting On Google Maps without a Specific Search

Noticed other business, like Rico Foods just show up when a Google Maps of the area is brought up.  We would like to know how that is possible and what we need to do to set this up.

Also, is there a way to change our business classification.  We had to choose Sunglasses rather than our preferred Optician or Optical Store, as it doesn't seem to be on the list when we registered our Business.  Others have it in theirs.

 

Business Name: Glimpse and See Eyewear

Address: 4750 Yonge Street, Unit 115, North York, Ontario

Hi Helmut,

 

Do you know what we need to change to get a place label assigned to our Business?  What factors or settings can we change?

 

Thanks,

there are no known specific factors or settings.

Its all said in their linked article - to say it shortly:

Its all a matter of their algos.

And they never decover the secrets of their algos
