When i search for "sealcoating niles ohio" i would expect to show up as my business is only 4 miles down the road. However there is a business that is over 30miles away showing up and they don't even service our area. I'd like to understand why that is or what i could do to improve my visibility in the area. I believe i've already got "My business" information all in there properly. We've had a website for years, and i even spend some advertising dollars with the adwords program. I'm at a loss. Can someone help me understand this a little better?

Hi @Running925


When I search that, looking at the organic results, Google clearly does not understand the structure of your site and not sure on which page to show to users.


So I would correct take a look at your site structure.

Next we need to link to your listing >> send the correct signals.


Below your address in Footer add >> Location >>  and link it to


Add structured data to your site >>



I would also UN CAPS your business name, this is against naming guidelines
