Hi All,

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I would greatly appreciate any advice.

I verified my local business into Google about 10 days ago. It shows up if you google the company name and city. "Same Day Appliance Repair West Palm Beach." It also shows up in the list if you Google the key term "appliance repair" and the zip code which is 33405. However if you Google the key term appliance repair and the city name West Palm Beach it doesn't show up anywhere on the list. This is what most people will be searching. I understand I won't be on the top yet, but I was hoping to at least be on the list.

Has anybody ever heard of or seen this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time
Tim

Hi +Tim Feld​, you might need to do a few extra steps before your business listing gets considered by Google. Like: cross linking your Google My Business Page with your website, make sure your page details are complete, add pictures, and more important make sure your NAP (Name, address, phone number) is consistent across other directories.

Hi Guys, Is there any relationship between Adword spending & Google Local Pack and Local Organic position?

In other words do your AdWords advertising campaigns have an impact on your local pack rankings.

Does Google rewards those running Adwords campaigns?
