Google Search Results are Incorrect

Hi,

 

I run an estate agency called Athena Living.

 

When I google "Athena Living" the first result is a company called Zoopla whose link redirects to a page which shows another estate agencies details. How can I stop this from happening? I tried speaking to Zoopla and they said google needs to correct this. Essentially google need to stop this result completely as it is incorrect.

 

The second result is correct - my website.

 

Thank you for your help.

@Farah E

 

your provided information is

 bit sparse.

Searching for "Athena Living" I get the below:

Neither of the results seem somehow linked to "Zoopla"

 

Please elaborate providing links and screenshots

That is so strange! Maybe because you are using google in a different country? I am using google in the UK.

 

Please see screen shot below and here is a link to the first result:

Ok being VPN-tunneled to the UK and using www.google.co.uk I also get theb as first result it like you:

Athena Living, W2 - Estate and Letting Agents - Zoopla

www.zoopla.co.uk › Estate agents and letting agents
 
Call 020 8022 0759 - Zoopla > Profile of Athena Living, W2 Estate and Letting Agents on Zoopla. View details of Athena Living's location, listed properties for ...
 

But I should say now: this has nothings to do with GoogleMyBusiness.

Its a matter of ranking of websites in GoogleSearch for ther query "Athena Living"

 

Recommend asking the experts of Googlewebsearch:
