I want to change my business name at google my business. I tried too many times and when I finished, I received an email for verification of my last business name. What can I do?

A business name is a major part of the identity Google uses to make a listing for you.

It also uses the phone no and address.

If you are trying to change the name to escape negative reviews they will associate by address.

And you would also need to change the name everywhere on the web where you ahve listed the business.

Thank you for your answer. I do not want to escape from negative reviews. We have shortened our name and our logo and we have changed some of our services (we have replaced some services with others). I have changed this logo everywhere. So now what happens with google my business?

Without any details its hard to advise. As it asks for in the blank post can you share the business name, phone no, address and a link to your search resultas it is and a screen shot of your GmB edit page with any error message. Typing in Epidosis gives me an online dictionary which does not seem to be a GmB type of business. A Google+ Brand page might be more appropriate and you then need to rank your web site.

Unfortunately, there is not an option with screenshots there. I have just received an email from google my business with our previous name. It was the email that is send to companies before the verification
