Google search shows wrong location (competitor)

I left Kelley Lovett and Blakey located on N. Oak St. and started my own business at 100 North Patterson St. Valdosta GA 31601.
This information was updated on both my business info on google and theirs as well. However my business does not appear on

google maps at all and a google maps search for my business directs you to their office!!

business ph: 229-474-6742

One other thing, I cant find a link on your site to your business page.

Replace that Map on your contact page, with your actual business map

This is the embed:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d3425.995405383324!2d-83.28133788486616!3d30.83... width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Hi @Charles F

 

I do find you in maps.

 

Screenshots, not working tonight, see my search.

 

Google also has only 3 pages of your website indexed, so I think we have a case of very few signals.

 

Suggestions: 

Add Bankruptcy Attorney Valdosta, GA to your site <title>

 

<title>Charles Farrel Law - Bankruptcy Attorney Valdosta, GA</title>

 

Add your business address and contact details to your sites footer.

 

Then use schema markup to mark this up: https://schema.org/Attorney

 

Next you need to build up some references to your business.

 

You could do this yourself : https://moz.com/learn/local/citations-by-city

Or use their service; https://moz.com/local/pricing
