Places listing not showing in search results IanRoss 4/30/12 4:16 AM
Hi

I am helping Belle Vue Coach Hire to get their Places listing visible in the search results.

The listing is live OK at https://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?q=Belle+Vue+Manchester+Ltd&hl=en&cid=12525249759522042651

However it does not show for any searches like:

coach hire manchester

or even

coach hire stockport

Any suggestions as to why it's not appearing will be greatly appreciated!

You seem to be showing up fine.

Thanks Jim - I'm happy to see it appearing now for 'coach hire stockport' in the top 3

 'coach hire manchester' is now 75th - it was in the top 3 for ages until recently - at least it shows up now.

Also the phrase 'Heaton Moor' (in square brackets) has inserted itself into the address in the search page (it's not there in the actual listing though)

Any idea what's going on?

I see you fine for Coach Hire Manchester too.

The local search listing for your business is a compilation of data collected and inferred from the internet (your Place Page is only one, albeit important, source of data for that search listing).  Either Google if finding your address listed with the [Heaton Manor] text often enough to conclude that is the dominant way the address is presented on the internet or Google has come up with some new address standardization rule that adds things like that.
