Hi @nicholas h

 

You can set your image as suggested by @Bob M however if the image has been added via the "upload to Public" section then Google randomizes these images.

Howdy Tim,

 

Maybe you can help me out.  I have verified my business New West KnifeWorks for a Google Business account.  Unfortunately as I search " New West KnifeWorks" in Google I notice a ton (44) of outdated store and product shots I never uploaded.  When I return to my account page, I only see the 12 photos I recently uploaded.  How do I delete these outdated photos that I can't seem to track down.

 

Cheers,

 

Anthony

Howdy Tim,

That is another issue Google seems to constantly trying to force on us.

1) We are currently located at the 98 Center Street Unit C address, and have been here for the past four years.

2) The Lake Creek Dr. address has been obsolete for 4 years, and Google will not let us take it down.

Any and all advice is deeply appreciated.

Hi @Anthony C

 

I looks like these were originally added to the Upload to Public section and thats why you cant locate them, or see an account they were added from

 

PS: I see you have added more, I would not recommend adding there, use your photo section for images.

The other possability, is where they added by the street view photographer, because 2 look very similar.

 

Your only option is to report them.

As to the 2nd old location : https://goo.gl/maps/NHnsxZemv692

 

You will need to contact business support and ask them to mark the old location as MOVED to the new location.

 

Mark as Moved: https://goo.gl/maps/NHnsxZemv692

 

Moved to : https://plus.google.com/105624534341828254824/about
