Once I've verified my business, it did show up in the search for several days, but it wasn't showing up when I checked yesterday and also today. I changed open hours once ten days ago. Is there anything I can do to make it show up?

hi Daisy

i'm able to see you when I search for 'Five elements home chicago' - is there a particular search term you're trying to rank for?

Hi Priya,

Yes, my business used to show up when putting our name without location "Five Elements Home" on Google search, but if I do so now, it doesn't. I'm wondering how I can get it back to what it used to be like.

Thanks,
Daisy

Hi Daisy

Ok, I think the main issue is that Google doesn't have a lot of trust that your business is actually located at that address.

I'd recommend embedding the actual map of your business location in your website, in the location page. The code to embed the proper map is this:
<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m14!1m8!1m3!1d11874.583655024524!2d-87.6653429!3d41.92197!3m2... width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Then I did a search for your business and full address and had trouble finding references to your business outside of your website. I'd recommend listing your business on some industry specific directories to increase the citations and improve Google's trust in you.

Putting your contact details in the footer is a good idea but I recommend marking it up using schema.org code. Your website designer will be able to do this.

Hi Priya,

Thank you.

We just added the code above and are waiting to see the change. How long does it take?

Hi Daisy

I can't put a time frame on this unfortunately - that's up to Google's algorithms and getting the citations added to local directories can take a while.

My verified business "Facebook" page Ace Tattoo does not show in the Google listing. Other stuff about my business does show.  On Facebook, it is verified, is open to all countries, lists hours, address, phone, took the age restriction off.  I have contacted Facebook several times under the topic of something wrong with the "page."  I submitted 2 screen shots of Google where I used the key words "Ace Tattoo Rockford Mi." & "Tattoo shops Rockford Mi." 

Thank you for any help you may give, my Facebook URL is:  https://www.facebook.com/acetattoorockford/

Ace Tattoo

11555 Edgerton Ave NE

suite 102

Rockford Mi 49341

My Google URL is:  https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=Ace+tattoo+rockford+mi

If I was to ask a 2nd question, there is a Google review by a Shari S.  She posted it out of State 10 years after she got the tattoo.  The first few years I worked by myself.  I am a girl.  She said it was done by a guy.  When I responded to her.  She said she came back and talked to the owner.  I am the owner, a girl.  She also had the minimum price wrong.  She also could not describe what the shop looked like when I asked her (she could of Googled it.)  If there is any way you can take down this fake review as a Google representive, I would appreciate it.  Ace Tattoo is a corporation registered with the State of Michigan.  It can be looked up that a girl/me named Michelle owns it.
