we are a 24 hour roadside service for truck and trailers.  my question is if someone does a search for 24 hour roadside service how can you get your business to come up?  There are no category options for this.  Basically the only category options i had was truck repair shop, trailer repair shop.  we dont even have a shop we just do roadside service.  so my question is how do i get business to show when certain keywords are used?  Any help would be appreciated!  Im not sure if this is the right url i need to post https://plus.google.com/103291025866507765546/about

Hi @jody l

 

That link is a 404, so please log into your account and see if this has been suspended, which will explain a lot.

 

Secondly, a category is not a keyword, so pick the nearest applicable category. Google then uses your business description, website, posts and external online references to understand how and where to display your business page.

I just checked and it seems to be working OK. Nothing says its suspended. I may not have posted the right URL. Wasn't sure how to get it. I put 24 hour roadside service under our company name. You would think the company name would come up when someone searches for roadside service.
