I'm asking about 8 restaurant locations that I manage. All have had a verified Google page for at least 6 months. I regularly update all our listings, add photos, etc., however, none of our locations show up in a search for "Restaurants in XYZ City". For example, if I search for "Restaurants in Woodmere, OH," the first restaurant listing I included below is nowhere to be found in the results, yet all the restaurants right next door to us are. This is the case for every location. Please help.

Thank you for your response. Spoke with a specialist today and they said to ask the Google Community. Do you have a user support number or anything?

I only looked at your first listing, but the name is breaking G guidelines for one thing. You can not have a geo descriptor in there like that. Your name is just Paladar Latin Kitchen and Rum Bar. I personally would also link your GMB listing to the location landing page. And on that page, I would recommend better title tags and meta description. There are over 350 factors that G uses to determine ranking. So it's hard to say what else could help without a deep dive.

Working off the first one listed, the Category you have chosen is Latin American Restaurant. This is heavily influencing the result. If you type 'Latin restaurant Woodmere OH' you come up first. I cannot publicly see the what secondary categories you have chosen, if any, but I am sure they are playing a part as well.


Your businesses are listed in the Maps, they are just not showing as widely as you wish. As Scott is lightly suggesting, you might need the experience of a local SEO consultant to make your business more visible.
