Delete Google Map Listing

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Dear community,

 

until some weeks ago our business didn't have any google maps listing. But now someone made a listing, which we don't own or made. So far we didn't claim the listing, because I wanted to delete the listing from google maps as Option A.

 

Does anyone know how to delete a not claimed listing from google maps?

 

Option B is that we claim the listing and varify it.

 

Greetings

Hi Patrick

Why would you not want to claim the listing? If you are not eligible for a local listing (because you're an online business for example) then you can contact GMB support (https://support.google.com/business/contact/business_c2c_l?rd=3#) and ask them to delete the listing as it was created in error.

But if you are a local business then claiming the listing gives you control over the photos; contact details; business hours and provides opportunity to respond to reviews. Definitely a good situation to be in I think!

Hallo PryiaC,

thank you for the quick reply.

We are only an online service and do not have a local store. Therefore it was created by mistake and we want to delete it. I already contacted the GMB support.

But I think about creating a brand page for our compay.

Do you know where I can check if our google+ page is already a brand page?
