When searching my location my competitors are coming up in maps

My business is International Beauty Institute not Canadian Beauty College. 

 

That picture is what comes up all of a sudden when searching for my business. My phones have never been so quiet. I know people are searching for us and now calling that location. It has been 2 days now. Been fighting with google support and still not fixed and I do not have confidence that they are fixing it. 

 

 

Below is a picture of what should be coming up. It is also very strange because there was 15 reviews prior to this error.

INTERNATIONAL BEAUTY INSTITUTE

1945 Dundas St East Suite 215

Mississauga, Ontario

Hi @James H

 

Google seems to think that their page is more relevant.

 

A couple of changes I would make, that could reverse this.

 

Your Web Page:

http://www.intlbeautyinstitute.com/mississauga-location/

 

screencapture (46).png

 

Change the H2 tag >> Mississauga  Location

 

To :  International Beauty Institute Mississauga

 

Change the embedded map for the proper business page embedded map

 

Here is the proper embed:

<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d2888.273894436356!2d-79.57403668450334!3d43.621657979122354!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x882b38062a665edf%3A0x867433b12b4746e6!2sInternational+Beauty+Institute+(Mississauga+Campus)!5e0!3m2!1sen!2suk!4v1460059048608" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Change the <title> of the Page to :

 

International Beauty Institute Mississauga Campus

 

Half way down the page : Our state-of-the-art Mississauga campus offers:

 

Use an <H3>  Our state-of-the-art Mississauga campus offers: </h3> tag

 

Add this JSON-LD structured data markup to the page

 

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "EducationalOrganization",
  "address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "streetAddress": "1945 Dundas St E",
    "addressLocality": "Mississauga",
    "addressRegion": "ON",
    "postalCode": " L4X 2T8",
    "addressCountry": "Canada"
  },
 
  "name": "International Beauty Institute Mississauga Campus"
}
</script>

I will try this. One other thing I would like to ad is my page has pretty much disappeared out of no where and even all my reviews have now disappeared. I feel like this is way more then just a ranking issue.

How many reviews did you have, I am seeing only 1 : https://plus.google.com/104526049343094342102/about

 

If you follow my above recommendations ( not ranking ) you will be sending clearer signals to Google, currently you have no defined structure

Search console and analytics are attached to a website, not a business page. They have no influence on a site other then reporting the data

You can try business support : https://support.google.com/business/contactflow

 

I see you made the changes, we just need to wait until Google revisits your website. It last visited the page on the 6th April, so it still has not found your updated page.
