Hi @FreeBHK H,

Could you please provide a screen capture where you see business listings that have larger Place Labels (pins) that other businesses?

Google use default Place label icons on Maps and they have the same size.

Thank you

Hi @treebles

 

Sorry for mentioning it incorrectly. 

 

What I ment was that there are lot of other business which mentioned above the Google layer where we are. 

(The more you zoom the deeper you go in the layers.)

 

My question is, how can I bring it above the layers, so that people can notice it in maps.

Hi @FreeBHK H,
There is very little business owners can do, it is Google Local algorithms that choose what business listings are shown as Place Labels on Maps and at which zoom levels they appear.

Not every business in the Local database would get its Place Label displayed by default on Maps

Although an active business listing, that people visit the location, and people post photos and reviews, may help under some circumstances, there are no guarantees it would.

Hi @FreeBHK H,

I cannot tell you what those factors are exactly because I do not know what they are, Google does not say what those factors are to prevent business owners to try to manipulate the display of Place Labels on Maps. 

The help page on Place Labels is sparse, lacking any specific details on purpose.
