Hello,

 

I wasn't sure if this is the correct section so I apologise in advance. 

 

When searching on Googe 'LeighMedia' Click Here a business not even relevant to mine shows for some reason. 

 

The get my business to show I have to search 'LeighMedia Company' Like this... then my business shows.

 

How can I make it so my business shows for 'LeighMedia'

Hey Ash,

 

I don't get anyone else showing up when I do the search. I do seem some competing social URLs and profiles but I see your website first in both instances WITH and WITHOUT the Company added. (see below) If you want to have your Google Business account and knowledge graph information show I would work on marking up your website to better match for that branded search. See here https://developers.google.com/structured-data/

I'm not sure why, I done a private browsing session and it still shows for me.

@Ash M

To add my two cent to what @Jordan Burleson said:

 

I neither get your business shown up for either of both links  Click Here or  Like this... 

To be precise: I don't get any local results at all - neither your business nor anyones else business.

 

But I get you with a Knowledge Panel for this search URL  

https://www.google.co.uk/?hl=en&gws_rd=ssl#hl=en&q=LeighMedia+Leigh-on-Sea
