Hi @Naomi H

 

These are your pages ( That I have found )

 

Brand Page ( without the name ) https://plus.google.com/+Tenaciousstaffing/about

 

Business Page ( Unclaimed ) https://plus.google.com/114414107048911231492/about

 

( scroll to bottom of business page to >> Manage this Page )

 

Tip:  use your current Google account when claiming this, so all accounts are in 1 place )

 

Once you have claimed the page, you can add Logo and Header Image to page, but you will still need to verify it before the images are shown.

Hi Naimi, Google shows your the map image with marker for unverified business. Simply claim your business on google at https://business.google.com

Once you have claimed and verified the listing, you can use any image you like as your header and profile image. These images will show up where you are currently seeing the generic map images

Thank you so much for your reply! Will verifying the business allow me to remove the actual photo of the business that currently appears in the search results when I search for my business on Google? Its the actual photo of the business that I would like to remove (not the generic map image). Thanks again!!! :) Naomi

Hi @Naomi H

 

Once you've verified the business you do have the option of requesting which photo you'd prefer appear in Search results.

 

It isn't guaranteed to appear (Google reserves the right to show any of your images that they wish to show) but it is better than leaving it up to blind chance.
