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

Hello everyone, I have a business (Totally Wired Services) which has two almost separate categories listed. One is Snow Removal and one is Equipment Rental. We are a small business but we rent out electrical generators. Anyways, Whenever i search for my business it will show up for the Snow Removal category but not the generator rental category (Equipment Rental). I updated it almost 11 months ago, just wondering how long it takes to update, its hard to get business around here by word of mouth since everyone has a smart phone. Thanks. P.S. We also are large in the snow removal business, we provide both services year round.

My first bit of advice would be to get your website optimised for your local area and service. The page titles at the minute are looking neglected so it might be worth getting that sorted. In order to show up for generator rental, you will need to get more authority around that term. I suggest you include it in your description on your online directories and try to build some links/authority around that one term.

As Ryan mentioned, in order to improve you would need to build your sites authority.

When you say page titles? Do you mean the actual titles of the pages on the website?

That is correct. Your title tags.
