Hi Google Pros,

 

please help me with this:

 

when I search for "a party planner, Bay area" I see my competitors as big red dots while I am not there. When I zoom in I can see my party planning business as a tiny yellow star. How can I change the star in to a big red dot?

Okay, I saw a difference that my competitor's category is a "Party Planner" while mine was an "Event Planner". I changed my category accordingly. Let's hope it will change the symbol of my location on Goggle map into a red dot. If you have other ideas, please, share them with me.

It was showing as a star for you because you are logged into the account you created the listing with and/or actually at the location while doing the search.

Yes, I figured that I needed a special code to confirm my new location. So they sent it to me and I could change it! Thank you!!!
