The short answer is that you cannot.


If it makes you feel better, the competitor has not targeted your listing directly because that is not possible to do.

Google My Business and Google Places are free services, therefore they need ads to be supported.  Google wants to serve the most relevant ads it can to make

its users happy. An ad for your competitor is about as relevant as it can get when it comes to your listing.


I would suggest focusing on the content in your business lising showing how your business is better than the competitor in the ad.

This ad diverts people to another agents website at View Talay 6.
How is that fair?????
I would rather delete my google places.

I'm afraid but you can't manage to get your local listing deleted from Google - not even if you delete it from your dashboard.
