When it comes to attracting local business to your store, it’s imperative that your listing shows up on Google Maps. With many people doing their Google searches via their smartphones from the road, if you aren’t showing up at the top of that list, you probably aren’t getting the customer. What’s worse is that the reason you aren’t showing up is because of something small that you might not even realize. Let’s take a look at some reasons why you might not be showing up on Google Maps from a Boston maps optimization company.
Your Listing Isn’t Verified
If your Google My Business listing is not verified, then your listing is not eligible to appear in Google Maps, plain and simple. Add in the fact that your competition probably has their listing verified and boom, you aren’t even showing up on Google Maps.
Your Listing Doesn’t Have Location Authority
Verifying your listing doesn’t guarantee you the top of Google Maps. It doesn’t even guarantee you the first page. Without location authority you are out of luck. In order to achieve location authority, you need to make sure that your business information is accurate and consistent across the web. That includes business name, exact street address, city, state and zip code, phone number, and website URL.
Your Listing Has Been Suspended
There are numerous reasons why your listing could be suspended. Some of the common reasons are:
You updated your business information on your Google My Business listing and Google just waiting to verify the information.
Google’s system is questioning the validity of your office location.
You are using a virtual office location such as a P.O. Box or USP Store box #.
If your listing has been suspended, you will be unfindable on Google Maps.
