Wrong Photos Showing for Business

I work for South East Australia Gas Pty Ltd (SEA Gas) in Australia. Our website is www.seagas.com.au. The google search for "SEA GAS" is returning pictures of ships in the sea which aren't related to our organisation.  How can we get these pictures removed?

Regards

For one, you have not updated your Google My Business photos with the appropriate photos per https://support.google.com/business/answer/6123536 from what I see on https://www.google.com/maps/contrib/116744322065694601536/photos/@-34.925133,138.606632,17z/data=!3m...

There is no local business schema that I can detect on the home page nor on http://www.seagas.com.au/contact/ (https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/local-businesses).


You seem to be missing any sitemap.xml page to help identify your key pages or your images.

 

Google has no way to differentiate between you and the SEAGAS that appears in the photos unless you let Google know by following their recommendations.

Once you add the recommended images at the recommended sizes to your GMB profile, start with the steps at https://support.google.com/business/answer/6130451 to flag the inappropriate images on your GMB profile.

adding to what @Phillip B said

 

Searching for your business I get this GMaps listing  https://goo.gl/maps/gy17HzRdRRx and I can't see ant photos about " pictures of ships in the sea which aren't related to your organisation"

 

Perhaps you @Jamie C should provide more evidence of the issue

@Jamie C - I flagged those photos after responding to the original post -  perhaps you did too?  I am guessing others readers may have as well.  Looks like they are gone from your listing.   I'd take this opportunity to get some more of your own photos in place!

I don't have full control for doing all the recommended updates to the website right at this moment, but I've taken on board your advice and uploaded a few pictures sourced from mgmt and the display is more relevant now.
