My business is showing someone else's events

1. Full business name  - The Bike Shed Theatre and Cocktail Bar (1)
2. Current business address - 162/3 Fore Street, Exeter, EX4 3AT
3. Current telephone number - 01392 434 169
4. Google Maps URL - (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/The+Bike+Shed+Theatre+%26+Cocktail+Bar/@50.721573,-3.5361757,17z...)
5. Website (if applicable) 

 

It seems our business listing on Google search is picking up events from another nearby business: 'The Shed' in Alphington. How do we remove these?

 

Thanks,

Alex

Google is using the common name data to associate third party data with you I assume?

If so its a bug and you need to ask Google to sort it out.

Hey Alex,

 

Did you find a solution to this problem besides asking Google?

Thanks Andrew, we've already asked them several times and the events keep showing back up. Any ideas on how to ask them so it stops permanently?

Hi

 

There must be some web search result with both businesses details in it.

 

Try searching on combinations of:

 

Your phone no, business name, address, category

 

and

 

Their phone no, business name, address, category

 

If you find one you may have to persuade a third party to change some data.

 

Andrew.
