    Google Maps buried listing after updating address

    I updated the maps listing address on a clients GMB page to reflect the majority of the citations online. I removed STE and replaced it to reflect the # sign on most listings.

    Now the listing only shows in results when I zoom in. It is a dental practice if that matters.

    After calling Google they blamed it on the address update from January 7th, but this listing burying only happened within the last day.

    Any ideas?

    Also FYI, there is a Pediatric Dentist and an Orthodontist at the same address with a different STE number. The Pediatric Dentist is now ranking higher. We have almost 60 positive reviews, they have 7 reviews.

    Eddie, can you give us the website for the business in question? It's really hard to say without knowing that.

    Wow this Forum is amazing, first post and Joy Hawkins replies to me . I've watched quite a few of your webinars.

    Two birds one stone, here's the maps link - https://www.google.com/maps?cid=3306...07642187&hl=en

    I know there is some on-page SEO that needs to happen as well. We're working on that.

    Re: Google Maps buried listing after updating address

    Eddie,

    This forum is like my online version of a Starbucks (in the sense that I love hanging out here) so hopefully we see more of you!

    I checked that listing out in MapMaker and confirmed that Google isn't reading the suite number as a suite number, basically meaning it doesn't get put into the suite number field. Can you try editing the listing to make it exactly like it was before you changed it? I want to see if that does something different.

    I went ahead and changed it back to Ste 107, which from everything I could tell was what it was prior to the change.

    Glad to run into you in the digital Starbucks, I'm sipping espresso on the other side here!

    Welcome Eddie. Yep, Joy is one of our biggest superstar members!

    Also Eddie, keep in mind that these days Google is pretty good at figuring out Ste, vs Suite, vs # and Rd vs Road, etc. ANY time you change NAP it can cause problems. So unless something is blatantly incorrect, I normally would not change it just to match citation formatting/abbreviations.

    That makes sense, is it important still to correct NAP on other sites however?

    I'm still seeing it as the #107 so let me know when you see the change go live.

    Haha. We're always happy to help!

    If the citations are correct except for the street abbreviations/variations like above, I would not worry too much. Google is much better at matching things up these days. But if you build new ones, follow the format you end up with in GMB.
