Where does the Business Listing Blurb of Text come from?

1. Full business name: The Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort
2. Current business address: 17403 Front Beach Rd, Panama City Beach, FL 32413
3. Current telephone number: (850) 234-2154
4. Google+ URL: https://plus.google.com/+sandpiperbeacon

 

In a search for a business name, the organic listings are on the left, below 2 ad spots, and to the right, is the Rich Info section. 

 

On the right, is the photos / map / star rating etc. 

 

There is also a few sentences of text to describe the business. Currently, I do not know where ours is coming from, and since some of it is out of date / inaccurate, I'd like to find the source to correct it, or alternatively, populate a business description field somewhere that may override where it is currently coming from. 

 

Does anybody know where that text is fed from? Or where I am able to override it to correct it? (Suggest an edit doesn't have the option to edit this field of text, and it is not being taken from our business listing on Google Business page...

Hi Sandy,

The short description is algorithmically generated by Google (but written by humans) and is called an editorial summary. To learn more please visit: https://support.google.com/business/answer/6088158?hl=en


To report an incorrect business description you must meet the following criteria:
- Keywords and review snippets that have been associated with an unrelated place.
- Editorial summaries if the information included describes services that the business doesn't offer.


If so, you can report it here: https://support.google.com/business/contact/business_glance_summary

 

Best,

Meghan
