Has anyone else had this problem?

Moz Local seems to have difficulty pulling in many of my client Facebook pages, essentially telling me they don't have one...

However, with one of my clients, I'm desperately needing help. If you Google "Facebook (business name)" I cannot find the facebook page. It is literally not being indexed. But if you go to facebook.com and search for the business name, anyone can find it.

I've spoken to their support team and they have the usual recommendations...

1. Make sure page is public, not excluded to any country
2. Make sure no age restrictions are in place
3. Make sure Facebook page is set up as a local business

Now, I've checked all these settings, so I'm really at a loss as to why the Facebook page is invisible to Google. Moz Local has also told me their system can't find pages that don't have likes or check-ins, but this page has all of those things, even a few reviews.

Thanks for your help!

Sorry, I don't deal with FB at all so don't have any answers.

But I just Tweeted this to try to get you some help.

Thanks Linda. Well if the business facebook page is invisible, that has to be affecting local rankings is my thinking.

If Facebook had a support team, that might solve it.
