I am having an issue when searching for my  business name in Google "Western Beauty Institute" an old, closed location appears. This is confusing as there is a new location, but it is not showing up in Google.


This is the correct URL that is not showing in Google 

This is the old location that does show up in Google


1. Western Beauty Institute
2. 20855 Ventura Blvd #7, Woodland Hills, CA 91364
