There could be several reasons for this.
The 10 minute rule
Our search index updates every 10 minutes, so whilst you can see the business listing newly created it won’t show up in the search results for up to 10 minutes. Search again in 10 minutes and you’ll see it there.
Did you spell it correctly?
If it’s been more than 10 minutes since you added your business listing check that you spelt the business tags and location tags correctly when you added the business or when you searched? No, I’m not joking, you’d be amazed how often a mistake occurs.

Correct tags and relevant tags
Did you add correct location tags and business tags, for example, if you want the search terms “Aerial Photography in Bristol” to find your business, be sure you added “Aerial” and “Photography” as business tags, and “Bristol” as one of your location tags.
