One of my client is listed on Google Maps. But when I search for the targeted generic keyword, it doesn't show up. 
 Can someone help me with getting it displayed?

You can add the keywords to the listing name if they make sense and comply with google guidelines for business names.

I've checked your Google+ profile and it's a bit incomplete. Putting a little more work on business description, images and profile will help you show on those keywords.

Hi Maheeshi, 

 

Can I check that you have created a google business listing for your client? The link to Google+ you provide is a personal profile, and not intended or designed to act as a business presence, or to show your details on google maps. 

 

You should create Business Pages through business.google.com you can also read the support documents for this which you will find useful here:  https://support.google.com/business 

 

You can invite your client as manager, (perhaps using the account you have created for them), then promote them to owner of the listing, 24 hours after they have accepted the manager invite. 

 

A code will be mailed to your clients business when the page has been created, which when inputted, will 'verify' the business listing, and it should then start appearing on google maps.
