2. Check Your Business Address

Graph Search results are often based on location. If you don�۪t have the address for your business correctly listed on your page, you�۪re not going to appear for location-based searches.



Be sure your address matches the exact way it appears on your company�۪s website. It if says 123N. 1st St., Don�۪t list it on your Facebook page as 123 North First Street.
