Maps Mystery - Can anyone help me understand this please?

I don't understand why the following behaviour happens.

When I search for  "cosmetic dentistry Glasgow" our dental practice - Appletree Dental Care - does not appear on the map. It used to and the site is verified.

However if I nudge the map in or out using the + and - controls, our practice suddenly appears, both on the map and the listing at the side.

I have attached a screenshot of the initial map result without us.

I might understand it if this just happened when I zoomed in (and therefore revealed more detail on the map).

But it also happens if I zoom out.

Can anyone explain why this happens?

I should say I have retested this with cache and cookies cleared and using a VPN + incognito browsing, with the same result. 

 

Many thanks

Thanks Bryan.

Yes as I said in my post "I have retested this with cache and cookies cleared and using a VPN + incognito browsing, with the same result".

 

Thanks

This strange behaviour continues - I have now tested it again on a different computer with a different IP address.

And I have recorded a short 25 second video to illustrate the issue

https://youtu.be/HgVjs1nMW8Y

You will see when I click more places Appletree Dental Care is not visible in the links.

But when I nudge the + or - (in this case -) it does now appear on the left hand side.

Can anyone explain this?

Thanks

Thanks for responding Helmut but the behaviour I see in the video described above still occurs.

I'd really appreciate it if someone can explain it.

 

Many thanks
