Duplicates

Hello

 

We have hundreds of unverified duplicate pages that are competing with our verified listings for our client. I reported about 20 of them directly in Google Maps as a duplicate via the suggested edit function. However, I checked today and they are still there.   An example of this is below

 

https://www.google.com/maps/place/101+W+Spring+St,+Titusville,+PA+16354/@41.6262611,-79.6757571,17z/...

 

What is the best way to get these dupes removed? Is reporting it our only option? With Map Maker no longer available it seems thats the only way.  We have a spreadsheet with all of the maps links we need to have removed

 

THank you in advance-

I also experienced that reporting as duplicate very often doesn't help to get rid of duplicates.

Not even if using the GMaps report option "suggest an edit" as a Local Guide level 5 (I'm such)

 

In case you are a level 5 Local Guide there ar other options through GMaps bit more effective - reporting such dupes as Spam works most cases.

But in case you have many such duplicates I would recommed to go in touch with business support.

 

I recommend getting in touch with GMB support via one of these options and ask for help in getting duplicates removed:

Talk to a specialist

Facebook

Twitter

 

if this doesn't help come back to here providing information about such dupes not removed by support (having a linked spreadsheet hosted on drive would be fine)
