Mobile home dealership not showing up in results for Michigan?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My business name is: Creative Funding Service, Inc.  

Location: 1435 E Crooked Lake Dr. Kalamazoo, Mi 49009

Phone (269)806-8802 

Google + URL : https://plus.google.com/+SellmobilehomeNetnow

URL: http://www.sellmobilehome.net

When I type in "Kalamazoo mobile home dealer" we are not showing up in search results.  All of our search results seem to be poor at best.  Mostly we are looking to expand our mobile home and manufactured home buying activities in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois.  I would like out site to show up in search results for folks that are looking to sell a mobile home or manufactured home in the areas we service.  How can I get better results than I am getting now?  Thanks for any help in advance. 

Sincerely

Marc

@Marc F

 

at first I have to admit having a hard time to get your actual business page   "Creative Funding Service, Inc." page on a category search like "Kalamazoo mobile home dealer" or "mobile home dealer near Kalamazoo"

But I noticed a possible reason for it (not sure whether of not it matters)

 

There is for the same business name and  phone number an other business page and it comes as a Service Area Business   and this other business page is marked as permanently closed: 

Both business pages are verified businesses.

Are you managing them both in your dashboard?

@Helmut Geissler Thanks for the reply. Yes I manage both locations and we have closed the other location. What do you recommend here? Do I need to create more than one page for a single business? We buy mobile homes and manufactured homes in about a 250 mile radius of Kalamazoo, Mi and this includes large parts of Indiana, Illinois and Ohio. I just changed our service area in my mobile app. Any help is certainly appreciated with this issue.

Marked as Best Answer.

Nope
the rule is one business at a location = one business page for the location

I therefore recommend to contact business support and to g et bot pages merged

 

Note there was a typo "to g et bot pages merged"

 

It should read as "to get both pages merged"

I am not sure you understand my problem correctly @Helmut Geissler  I believe we (meaning a former employee) created the other page and, at the time we were doing some business from that location. Since we are no longer doing business from that location, I shut it down and marked it as permanently closed. I don't think this was created by a BOT as I have control over it/the location that is marked closed. So-now that that is out of the way, I am still at a loss as to why my company would not be showing up on Google Maps or other Google searches relevant to the services we offer and in the areas we serve?

@Helmut Geissler I talked with Google a while ago and I am still not getting good results, and not showing up in maps when I search "Mobile Home Dealers" or "Manufactured Home Dealers" . I am active on Google + and have a strong presence on Facebook, Linked In and Twitter. What am I missing here?

Thanks for the reply @Helmut Geissler- Could the problem be in regards to my service area or how my business is classified? I set up a 200 mile service radius because our primary business is buying manufactured homes in this area. We are not really looking to sell anything, we are looking to offer folks, the service of, a quick and easy way to dispose of manufactured homes.  Maybe we should not be a local business because of this?

Yes this definitively could be an issue.

our recommendation is not specifying SAB with more as 30 or 40 Miles radius
