My business is not showing up on Google Maps when searched by keywords

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My business has been verified and has a Google+ page that has been set up (https://plus.google.com/+VaporCoGainesville/). It will show up on google maps when specifically searched by name, however when searching using keywords for it's category (Vaporizer Store, Vape, etc) it does not appear with even a marker on the map. Some customers have even reported that it will not come up by name for them. Is there something I need to correct for it to show up?

 

Thank you for your help!

your URL gives me a 404 errror - means the page is deleted or what ever else.

I have the same problem. How did you fix it? Search Boise CPA and I don't show up but if I type in my website, I do show up. www.whittakercpa.com

typing in just "www.whittakercpa.com" I get this website and its content - but I of course don't get your google business page or any knowledge graph for it.

Searching instead for "whittaker & associates, Inc near Boise" I get your knowledge graph.

I also get you for your category and the city searching  "Certified Public Accountant near Boise"

Why on earth should we get you for "Boise CPA"?

Thank you for responding...very helpful. I'm not sure I understand this comment:

I've found that when I ask people what they would put in boise CPA. I believe this is a high search term used in our area. The interesting thing is Jim Geddings, leases office space from me and he is also a CPA with NO REVIEWS and he shows up ahead of me.

I, too, am having an issue with not showing up based on my search terms. I have the following search terms listed "child psychologist" and "psychologist" in Dallas, and neither pulls up my business on the map. However, if I search my business name (Align Psychological Services) it does pop up.

I'm having a similar problem. It seems the listings that Google returns are listings they gleaned from local yellow pages years ago. One of my competitors has no Google presence, shoot not even an internet presence, but because they have been around for years they show up in the top results, even their old business name shows up as a top result.

How can this be mitigated? Our business should show up in the Pages area as #2 or #3, we don't even show up when you click "More..." We are a very specialized business and there are only 2 other companies like us in town so I would expect us to be appearing somewhere on "Pages"
