My listing is a no show in area searches

My listing does not show my address - by my choice - so does not show up on map.  My area of business is 32 KM around my (unseen) address, but it will only show up in text listings when search is form my actual town.  It should show up in text listings when search is for all towns included in the radius where I do business.


I have also tried the option where I choose all the towns where I do business ... but again, my business will only be listed when the search is for the town my postal code is in.  It should be listed in all the towns I have inputted and do business in.


What am I doing wrong??  I need my business to come up in all these searches.


Business is: New Graffiti Tattoo.  Amherstburg Ontario.  Phone and website in listing.

Hi @Renee E


Anything over 40miles dilutes the signals too much and you don't show up very well. You do show up for tattoo Amherstburg Ontario
