I'm not sure. I guess when the search gets cached and updated, which is how long is a piece of string question.

Hi @Shane A

 

I strongly contradict the advise give  by @Alan C

 

Removing a listing form our dahsboards (as it would happen following your steps) has nothings to do with removing a listing from Google.

Just read the first phrase in here to understand it will not removed from Google - it still remainsvisble and can searched and reviewe by anyone else.

 

The only option to not get your listing found is marking it as permanently closed.

I believe Google is breaking European Law about personal information with the fact that they do not allow you to delete a business entirely from google map and searches. I used to have a sole proprietorship that has my name, address, and phone number. I closed it now, but anyone who googles my name can see my private address and phone number because of this stupid rule of Google. 
And there is nobody you can contact from google.  

This is unacceptable.
