I need help. When you google search: Target Media Partners (my company), our business listing does not show up – a truncated version with no contact information appears. When I access our page from the Business Account, it displays perfectly.

How do I get the Business Listings info to show up when users Google Search us?

@Target Media P - you can't. Google has updated their algorithm.

Hi,

 

When I search for Target Media Partners California, I am able to see the business page.

 

Thanks

Exactly - because your company is located in that state - if you searched for "Target Media Partners Florida" you wouldn't get it.

Thanks, Pavithra – but that's not what users organically search for. I need a solution for when users google our name, our biz page shows up. Super goofy that it doesn't work. I appreciate your help though!

Thanks, Nathan. We are a company with offices all over the country - our home office is in LA. Users won't intuitively add the state name ... they just google the biz name ... but no link to our biz page - very frustrating.

I can understand the frustration but Google pushed out the update a little while ago @Target Media P - if you search this forum there are quite of bit of GMB owners with the same issue but there's nothing you can really do.

 

EDIT: Update - I'm going to steal a response here that might help

 

Google my Business listing is designed for customers to discover local businesses offering them a face to face service.

Either via a store front they can walk into

or a service at their location, which can be your business premises or hoem by appointment where you do not cater for walkin customers.

 

These days a lot of searches are made on a mobile location enabled device where the 'in/near location' part is the location of the device.
