Hi. I got a florist store ATH Flora Design AS in Torggata 44Hamar, Norway. +4762532160. https://www.google.no/maps/place/ATH+Flora+Design+AS/
It appear on google maps if I search for "florist hamar" or "flower hamar", but not for the norwegian search words "blomsterhandel hamar"/"blomsterbutikk hamar" (the engish-norwegian translation there got several options) or "blomster hamar". What cause this? I have tried to add categories to my store to enter the category in norwegian as well, but are only allowed to enter in english. My private google account is in english, cause then it is easier to copy, paste and seach if I struggle with something. Does that have an influence on my business page? What about labels, am I supposed to use them to specify norwegian search words? What do I do wrong here? BR Eirik

Hi Helmut and thanks for the reply. My first reaction to this is "I have no idea", cause I have not created those listings. But I do have some ideas.

 

The second one, Hamar Blomster Design AS is company that closed down, just before I started mine. The reason why I got the same phone number is cause I bought it from the previous owner to make it easier for the established customers. Do I have to to claim this business, get the confirmation mail, verify and then delete that one? Does that one make a duplicate that disturbs google, so that my does not show up on the norwegian words for flower or florist store?

 

The first one, what does that show? It takes me here https://www.google.no/maps/@60.8078949,11.0563598,15z Is it Ringgata 283, 2316 Hamar you find? When I registrererd the company, before I got an rental agreement at Torggata 44, I registered the company (not at google, but in the norwegian company registry, Brønnøysund) at my home address. In Norway we have plenty of yellow pages companies that sells promoted listings at their sites. As soon as a company show up at Brønnøysund these companies takes the information into their sites. I guess google has found that information there and listed my company at my home address. Is this what you have found there? Do I have to get rid of it? And how
