Google Listing Not Ranking On Map Results

Hello All!

I have been struggling with my Google business listing for almost a year now and I finally decided to reach out to the community to see if anyone can give me any insight into my issue. Ok, so I own a hair salon in La Jolla, CA 92037, Valente Hair & Co. I verified my listing, I filled out all the information, added useful pictures, and now I have 16 strong reviews from other Google users. However my business listing is not showing up ANYWHERE near the top of the map results. I know I cannot always expect to be in the top 3 pack as it is a competitive industry, but I have seen other, newer hair salons that have opened up more recently, with weak listings (few pictures, few or 0 reviews, etc) ranking in the top 3 pack on Google map results. If you search for "La Jolla hair salon" you will not even see my listing in the top 20 map results. I am even ranking behind two SuperCuts locations with terrible reviews on the map results. I am starting to think there is something wrong with my listing. I have a strong presence online and my NAP is clean. Could anyone look into my listing and tell me if there is anything wrong with it or areas I could improve on?! Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here is my listing information:

My business is not showing up on Google Maps either.  It is verified, etc. but does not seem to appear. 

 

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Helmut,

 

I think he is confusing "not showing" with not ranking, as similar to my listing. I have maintained a strong Google business listing with all information filled out completely, helpful pictures, solid reviews from other Google users, and still my business listing does not even show up in the top 20 map results for my targeted keywords including "La Jolla hair salon". Do you have any insight regarding my original post above? I have read your responses on a lot of other forum posts and they have always been super helpful! Thanks!

Respected Sir,

                    I just read your problem. "My business is not showing up on Google Maps either.  It is verified, etc. but does not seem to appear."

 

                    So, Now re-apply in the Google My Business. Please follow step by step as mentioned bellow.

                     Firstly Type in Google search with " Google My business", it shows the results with "Google.co.in - Google My Business". Click On It.

 

                    Secondly When you click on "Google.co.in - Google My Business", it opens the google my business web site. Then Click on "START NOW" button (It is exactly on "Top Right Corner")

 

                    Thirdly, When You Press the "START NOW" Button, Then the Map Page automatically opens (Loads). Now you, see the map of google.

 

                   In this Process, It is the Most Important point, that is "You Must Sign In with Your gmail account".  

                   Write down your details as shown Below as in the My Business Map Page: Address box page: -
