As part of our monthly audit, we take the clients phone number and pop it into Google maps search and make sure their listing comes up.

I usually just copy and past my client's phone number into Google Maps and their listing comes up. For this client, their listing doesn't come up.

Phone number is correct in GMB and is correct when you Google Search Advanced Dental Care of Austin TX. Here is the phone number 512-331-1477. This technique works great for all my clients except this one. Any ideas?

From my experience, searching Google Maps by phone will not work for newer GMB listings.

It takes time for the search by phone to start working and may also be determined by how much data Google has gathered on that particular business.
