Local Business Disappeared from Google Maps

Up until a few weeks ago - my business was showing under the local maps search. It has now disappeared for a number of weeks and I cant understand why. 

 

My business still appears on the first page of google results for the same search term, but no where to be found on the maps page. It seems as if around 20 other businesses have also disappeared from the result. 

 

I am on google+ registered as a local business, followed all the guidelines....

 

Ive tried re-setting my location pin.. any other ideas?

@India Street T - how do you come up in the gybo.com console when you check your business?

This seems to only be available for businesses in America? - we're in the UK

Hi @India Street T

 

So you are verified:

I find you listed if i use the post code, but not just Belfast, which is odd.

I am also finding a big discrepancy in organic listing for position:

 

tattoo belfast >> position 9

tattoo shop belfast >> page 2

 

I wonder if their is an algo update.

 

I could not find any duplicate of your google business page which is usually the cause of a drop like this.

 

Could you move your PIN marker just slighly towards road and front door, which might trigger a refresh.

 

Could you also remove the spam tags out of the GMB page business description.

Thanks for this! I have tried moving the marker and removing the tags - it says it can take a few days to update so i'll give it a week and see if it works!

Hi @India Street T

 

Something not quite right looking at the Map results today, so I am going to escalate this.

 

I will let you know when I hear back
