Wrong Business Appearing on Google Search + Map Results

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I manage two businesses in a small area in the East Village of New York, both have verified Google Business Pages. 

 

Today, when I searched Google for "Momofuku Ko", the Business Box that appears is "Momofuku Noodle Bar", the other restaurant I manage. Somehow, the google maps listing for Momofuku Ko is being trumped by Momofuku Noodle Bar.

 

I don't know how to report this since nothing is wrong about either listing, it's just pulling the incorrect one.

Hi @Alex M

 

I cannot replicate your screenshot. When I search Momofuku Ko all I get is the wikipedia page.

 

A couple of things I did notice that will probably help Google understand the site and location is by using structured data markup on your website.

 

Restaurant Structured Data Markup

 

Oh, and I would also update the websites <title> tag, which currently is <title>KO</title>

 

I suggest <title> Momofuku Ko - East Village, New York</title>

Hey Tim,

Thanks for the reply. We're having trouble finding where we can edits things like the menu and reservation schema.

The menu link is currently wrong (we just relaunched our websites last week) and points to a general / not restaurant specific page. I think that also might be hurting the search results.

Thanks,

Alex
