The Quay Bed & Breakfast
I would be so grateful for some urgent assistance.
I have been liaising with our web developer and I can confirm that the Google Business listing was completed some time ago in accordance with the guidelines you included below.
To clarify, our website address is: http://www.thequaybandb.co.uk
We have two key objectives which we’re trying to achieve, but as of today are not met.
- When we type in “The Quay B&B Wells” we want to appear on page 1 of Google, both with our Website and The Google Business Listing but currently, we do not.
- We have been recently (3 weeks ago) added to Trip Advisor but if you Google search “Trip advisor The Quay B&B Wells” we do not appear
I include some extra info on what we’ve done to-date for each entity:-
We have registered the URL with Google, more than 4 weeks ago. We have a Sitemap and Robot file in place. We have used canonical URLs/Slugs and we have both Title data and Meta data on the site. Google has indexed the site and I can confirm from the Webmaster Tools there are no crawl errors and the pages have been indexed, yet we’re still not appearing on Page 1 for thequaybandb.co.uk
Google Business Listing
This has been set up in accordance with the guide below for several weeks and we were advised previously, not to change it for a while.
We were added to Trip Advisor a few weeks ago but we’re still not appearing on Google if you search “The Quay B&B Wells Trip advisor” or any permutation there of.
We would really appreciate your assistance and please do whatever you can to get us on Page 1 urgently. There has been a massive investment in this business and we’ve been patient, but it is effecting us now as people are unable to locate us when searching on Google, the website nor our Trip Advisor page.
I eagerly await your reply.

Hi @Jo F
Your business page is visible in local pack for The Quay B&B Wells.
As for your site appearing, I find you on page 4, which means that you need to build up the sites authority to appear on the first page for your name.
This article will help you get a better understanding on building your visibility:
I would also add local business structured data ( Bed & Breakfast ) to your site, you can use my Hotel Structured Data Guide however, replace the "Hotel" with Bed & Breakfast as in https://schema.org/BedAndBreakfast
Another quick win would be to embed your actual business page map in your footer and not just a google map.
This is your correct embed code:

Trip Advisor you will need to speak to them, but remember to include them in your structured data in SameAs section.
