Question about Business Search, Verification and Edit Address

Dear Google Support Team!

I am not sure, either we did something wrong or there is some problem. I have my google business page, google map page, which was created many days (or might be one or more months ago, I didnt exactly remember that.) ago by my friend. Now recently, I have taken owner ship of that page. The page is not published and not verified yet. But when I search with my business name, it displays my business along with suggestions. But when I hit enter, It redirects me to some other business named "Techbox Philippines". Though it is not verified and published yet, but still it is displaying this in suggestions. If it appears in suggestions, then on search by project name and hitting enter, should be redirected to my business, techbryx. For your assistance, images are attached in this post.

Moreover, I have requested for verification card by email. Will this requested verification card receive to my email address from which I have created my business card, or it will be receive on one which is have provided as an optional contact upon verification card request? I have changed my address of business location. When does the changes in business address will be reflected in google search? Are the changes will be reflected when the page becomes verified?
Thanks in advance.

indeed unless your page isn't verified it will not shown up as provided in your dashboard

@Junaid q

 

Two remarks please:  

- Your screenshot shows the page inquestion isn't published

- searching for the specified address in that entry being "office 206, garden tower, barkat market, Lahore Pk" gives as search result just "Barkat Market Pedestrian Bridge Lahore Pakistan"

 

Therefore my guess: your issue is an addressing issue.

 

Try using such an address for your business page giving a unique result pinpointing to the address location of your business.
