Hi, I have a business listing, but unfortunately I only get a marker when I enter my business name in Maps. Looking at the map like this, I see all sorts of neighboring companies, but not mine. Who has a tip for me?
Have a nice day,
Why only I see my company?
And the marking is nevertheless presented differently than by other companies!
I ask for your help
a branch of ours has changed location, the old location was in a shopping center. It will display, "Located in…". The new store is in its own building, so I would need to remove the "Located in …". Can anyone here tell me where I can delete this?
You will need to log in to "Google my Business" with the Google account you used when you created the search engine listing, and then you can change the address or do anything else like eg. different phone number or contact details.
When they have questions then log in
How can I update my companies when the previous company entry is not available?. And new owners am? LG Colonia
in the Google My Business help there is a corresponding guide for this purpose. There you can find recommended actions for different scenarios.
As I understood the question, the profile is currently claimed by the previous owner. This person then simply needs to store the new email address as the owner.

why does my company only appear when I am logged into Google? As soon as I log out the mark is gone, all other companies in the area are still marked. We are in a rural area and do not have a lot of companies in the next radius (means it’s not because of the display resp. zoom factor). Thank you.
thanks for the feedback. I have looked at the company on Google and see no problems at the location of your entry. Depending on user relevance,
but other entries can be displayed. Unfortunately you have no influence on this. I have captured what it looks like to me in the following screenshot:

my company entry in Google Maps keeps jumping to the neighboring property.
Is there a way to save the entry permanently
this sounds like a known problem. Have you already placed the location marker directly on your property via the profile in Google My Business,
or was the marker set automatically via the combination street and house number? The latter could be a cause.
Often it is also due to the zoom level in the map. The closer you zoom in, the more accurate it gets.
With a larger map section, there may also be shifts, depending on the integration.

Hello, how do I manage to get my business tagged in the map? I have a listing, but am not visible without searching.
thank you very much for your answer to our article.
You have a Google My Business entry and it is not displayed when you zoom to the respective location in the Google Maps map without having searched for it beforehand?
Did I understand this correctly?
Many greetings, Julien from FLYERALARM.Digital Team
I have this problem too. The company is displayed when you search for it, but not when you are on the map without having searched for the company.
I have this problem too!
Do you have a suggested solution in the meantime?
of course we understand that this is annoying and have done some research on Google. Unfortunately we do not have an exact solution either. Generally speaking, the location label or store marker is usually displayed in the form of a pin on the map.
If there are many entries for a certain map section, Google tries to display the most relevant entries for the user. In any case, this information can be found on Google regarding this issue. If you zoom further into the map, there is automatically more space to display more markers resp. Entries.
Therefore: The location label of a Google My Business entry is NOT always displayed at every zoom level and you cannot influence this directly in your Google profile. If your own business has been verified, it is more likely that the location label will show as well.
Google writes the following about this:
The location labels displayed in Google Maps are determined using an algorithm based on a variety of factors. One of these factors is the accuracy of the company information as well as the amount of content about the company.
We hope this information helps you to optimize your online marketing.
