1. Blue Square Inspections 
2. Gainesville, FL (Service based business, no physical location) 
3. (352) 871-3990

Dilemma is I verified business listing yesterday 7/21 (it has been over 24 hours now), prior to verification my business was showing up in various searches (buried deep in pages 7-10) as well as in a variety of local search results. Now after verification business is no longer showing up in local results unless the business name or an exact phrase is searched, I need it to show up again in a variety of search terms. My business is a local service based business so local results are extremely important to me. My Google My Business dashboard shows my site is published on Search, Maps, and Google+ but I used a different site to search for my Google Business Listing and it was not found. Not sure if the issue here is verification related or SEO related. Any ideas, feedback and/or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

since Google doesn't help or comment much about ranking I don't either.
Did you read their HC article about ranking?

Thank you very much! Any tips/suggestions for moving further up in the list? Also, when using a 3rd Party search for my business on Google it is not showing up, could that be a verification delay?
