Hello I own the google business for Community Church Edinburgh (not Metropolitan Community Church). However when I type the name into google the google business details are incorrect despite having entred them in correctly. It links to this wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_Community_Church_of_Edinburgh

 

I see that you managed to resolve the issue for the above user, could you do the same for us?

I own the Google Business for Community Church Edinburgh. We currently have a google business which randomly changes its details and title to a wikipedia entry for a church with a similar title - Metropolitan Community Church of Edinburgh - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_Community_Church_of_Edinburgh

 

I have tried to unlink our google business with the Wikipedia page but have failed. Just last week someone turned up at our service over an hour late because they went to the wrong address that google had.

 

Ive also tried contacting google and requesting a phone call but that does not happen.

 

Our address is:

Hello, Yes the information you provide is correct, however when you time the name into google, google automatically changes the title to a linked wikipedia that is in fact a different establishment which was at a completely different location.

 

I see that you have previously solved the issue for another business, do you think you could unlike us?

@CommunityChurch E

 

just got a word back 

 

They asked me whether sometimes ago perhaps your church rebranded from "Metropolitan Community Church of Edinburgh" to "Community Church Edinburgh".

In this case a fix of the matter should be easy done by them.

It gets more difficulty in case there are (or have been in the past) two different churches.

Please give me soon a feedback.
