Incorrect information about my business

Hi everyone, I was just wondering if someone could help me with my problem. A few months ago, I decided to move my skin care company from Orlando, Florida to Tampa, Florida for some instances. Recently, I searched for my company online and I was surprised to find out that there are a lot of citations that have a bunch of different addresses and phone numbers. What do you think should I do to fix these errors? Should I hire a local SEO or I can just fix it myself?

I believe that hiring a local SEO is a more convenient way to solve your problems. Some local SEO also offers cheap packages to choose from. This article from moz.com (https://moz.com/blog/advanced-citation-audit-clean-up-achieve-consistent-data-higher-rankings) will help you if you decided to just do it yourself.

Did you mark the search results listing for the old location as Yes to the 'permanently closed...' question?

That will help.

 

You simply need to go throught the text search results for your business and change the old ones to the new details for as many as you can.

 

In the US there are 5 or so top data aggregators besides Google where you can go and change the entry which is then promulgated down to smaller directories. This can take months. They scrape data as well so you need to iterate a few tiimes.

I have had clients who moved hundreds of miles and had these issues. Someone has to sort the old data out.
