Out of Date Business still appearing on sidebar in Google search

Hello! I deleted an out of date google business (Julia Cramer Voice and Piano Lessons), but it is still appearing on the google search page when I search for that business. The information is all wrong, and I would like it to stop appearing so that my potential clients are not confused with the wrong city and the wrong phone number (707) 477-1602 does not exist. And I am no longer in Oakland, California. Please let me know what I can do to stop this. Thank you!

@Julia C

 

You seem not aware the fact deleting a page from your GoogleMyBusiness Dashboard just means telling Google: I'm not more the owner of this listing and not interested to control anythings about it.

What you did is what this HC article tells you and you seem not read this part "You’ll no longer manage the location, but it will still appear on Google" of it.

 

Now its important to know what concrete happens with your business in order to give you appropriates advise?

 

Have you just moved to an other address or did you close the business at all (for what ever reasons)?

@Helmut, I apologize if I enter the discussion. I've read that note and this is why I'm writing here. Google allows users to decide themselves to not appear anymore on the maps? I mean: I might still have my activity but I would like to remove it from Maps.

Nobody created the place but me, so I hope nobody could force the place to stay there... but me!
Thanks for the clarification.
