The Google Business Profile

Google (My) Business Profile Questions Answered by Professor M

Why my business does not show on Google Maps? Whenever I search for my business, my business does not appear in the google maps results. Even when I zoom in on the map to the area where my business is located, unless I go to the exact address it does not show up.

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to make sure your business place will show automatically on Google Maps.

Why? Because the Google Algorithm chooses the places showing.

Google’s statement:
Place labels are a feature of Google Maps that surfaces great content such as landmarks, businesses, and tourist attractions on Google’s base map data.
The place labels shown on Google Maps are determined algorithmically based on a large number of factors. One factor these algorithms consider is the accuracy of the business information and the richness of the content associated with the business.
