One of my locations gets marked as duplicate

Hi

I have 3 locations total, 2 being next to each other, the other being in a different state.

What i get is the 2nd location that neighbours the first marked as a duplicate.

They have a different name, but the same contact phone and website. 

Torque Enterprises Fabrication Division

Torque Enterprises Components Division

 

One business does welding and fabrication, the other sells spare parts and components, and rebuilds mining equipment (on a basic description anyway)

 

Yet our components division got marked as a duplicate, even though i verified both via postcard.

 

What am i doing wrong to get marked as a duplicate business, when they are not?

two locations with the same phone number always will trigger the duplicate error.

Even if oyu will have two laocations with differnt phone numbers but very closed to the other and with a very similar name you will tirgger considered thm by thier algos as spam or duplicates

your business seems to be "Torque Enterprises Pty Ltd" and it have several departments.

 

Please check their guidelines (link "learn more") about departments of a business.

I doubt you have several businesses - but likely have"departments in th meaning of their guidelines.

That looks closer to what we have, so how do i go about creating the extra departments then?

I doubt you can and I'm convinced you shouldn't try it.

 

Create one nice listing for your business at this location and mantain it properly
