    Maps Help Needed - Ready to hire the right Google pro!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having trouble showing up on maps. I do have a very strong organic presence but for whatever reason my maps presents is very weak. I'm looking to work with somebody that can solve this issue. I have been diligently working on my maps results for over 3 years and I think there is something basically wrong with my listing. But of course that would be up to a Google professional to decide.

    I have worked with several SEO professionals and we have worked on my citations, social media, nap, videos and other relevant information.


    If you think you can figure this out I'm eager to work with you!


    Here's a video I made just for this forum (the only one I am asking this on). It shows the issue I am having:

    Feel free to contact me at michaelkingdom@gmail.com

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for offering up such a concise, descriptive video. It seems to me you really understand Google Maps rankings well.

    I moved this to the "Local Search Pros Wanted" section of the forum. Most pros are off today so not many visit here on Sunday. So tomorrow morning around 10 your time, please come back and bump the post, if you haven't gotten any replies.

    Curious to see what Joy might have to say about this.

    Have you contacted Joy Hawkins with Sterling Sky, Michael?

    Re: Maps Help Needed - Ready to hire the right Google pro!

    I did work with Joy before and she indicated I was outside of what Google deems the Sarasota area. However, as the video shows, that may not be the issue since many others in other towns are showing up in maps. Also, I'm not visible at all even when zoomed in on maps. Very strange.

    Re: Maps Help Needed - Ready to hire the right Google pro!

    I took a peek over the weekend and noticed a couple things...

    I searched for home inspector Sarasota (singular) and you came up #3 for me, here in Utah without geo-locating search or anything. (But you don't for me today.)

    Do you have Sarasota as the city in your address in dash? Because the address on Google maps says Sarasota. Or is that due to how you set up your service area?

    What categories do you have in GMB?

    Is your location legit, not a virtual office, etc? Has it been used for a previous similar business before? Just taking a stab, on mobile at the moment. Scratch that.

    Here's an image of my dash. My location is a brick and mortar home I have lived in for 10 years. No other business histories here.
