Can someone advise on how I remove my home address and photo from google while not affecting my search ranking? Thank you.

Hi @Ian B

 

As you have not provided the business details, I cant check to see if it is verified or unverified, so I will give you both versions.

 

If the listing is verified, log into account dashboard >> https://business.google.com/manage/

 

Select the business >> Manage Location

Info Tab >> Address section

 

Select >> I serve customers at their location ( this will hide address )

Select the area you serve >> Submit

 

Then go to Photo Section, update photos of business.

 

If Unverified ( In Listing it will say Do you Own this Business )

 

Click on the link and follow the process of claiming and verifying the business.

 

Postcard with PIN number sent out >> verify business.

 

Then correct address and images as above.

I tried following these steps for my business, but these steps seem to be different. There's a box that I can uncheck which says I serve people at my home business. I uncheck it but it still wants to keep an address on file. My business is called Patterns for Dessert.

Hi @Jacquie B

 

If you tick >> I serve Customers at their Location

Your address will stay in the system BUT it does not display the full address to the Public
