    Business ranked locally on Google Maps but not G Maps Maker

    I have a client whose business ranked locally on the Google Maps but not on the Google Maps Maker. When I do a search in MM via phone number and/or address it comes back blank. Not sure why there would be nothing in MM for the biz when they're are obviously verified/ranked on GMaps??

    Should I add their NAP to MM? Will this help rankings? Any negative affects?

    Thanks for any help on this.

    Do you feel comfortable posting the profile here? It'd be easier to say something after taking a look at it.

    One thing to rule out right away though... verified SABs aren't on map maker. If it's a service area business, you're not going to find anything on map maker, and trying to add it would be a bad idea.

    Thanks makes sense. It's a HVAC contractor and I have his 'address' info turned off in his Google listing. Yes he is a service area business...

    That explains it, no worries then. Everything is as it should be.

    Thanks Linda!

    And I'm actually the ram, heh. That was a business name for a short-run venture I tried with my best friend a few years ago. He's the one that was born in August... we're both doing other things now, just a funny relic from the past at this point. Still working together on some stuff, just a lot more informally now.

    Let me know if you ever want to start branding yourself and I can change to your real name or 1st name last initial like you do at GMB. Then folks (including Google) can connect the dots and see that all the great answers you post here are from the same guy as over there and are not coming from the ram.

    Thanks Linda! I'll take you up on that when I decide what I'm doing... I want to get some ducks in a row first, but I'll let you know when I'm ready!
