Duplicate listings returning to GMB

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hi all, I manage quite a few large accounts on GMB, and I've come across something that worries me quite a bit. 

 

When I delete quite a few locations from a certain account, I return the next day to see that the POI count is up from what it was the previous day. What happens next is that there are many duplicate locations that return to the account, even though I've removed them. They come back with an ID that says: (original ID #)_ Duplikat

 

I want to attach a screenshot, but it seems that I can't.

 

This concerns many Sparkasse listings in Germany, an example of this is: 

1) Kreissparkasse Grafschaft Bentheim zu Nordhorn - SB-Center

2) Klausheider Weg 11, Nordhorn

3) 05921 980

4) https://plus.google.com/b/118350901107210007039/118350901107210007039?gmbpt=true&hl=en 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I can't seem to get in touch with Google support directly.

@Stefan K

 

Sorry Stefan

I didn't notice your post earlier.

 

What are you trying to do with the mentioned listing at "Klausheider Weg 11, Nordhorn"

 

It's this GMaps link  https://goo.gl/maps/JKpG4d8zvgx

 

About how to add screen captures or similar to posts: https://www.en.advertisercommunity.com/t5/Basics-for-Business-Owners/How-to-add-screen-captures-or-s...
(or upload them to a public picture site - linking them to here)

 


I'm bit at lost as the URL in point 4 leads to a 404 error.

Hi Helmut, thanks for your reply.

 

Ah, that link on how to add a screenshot is mighty handy, I'll be sure to use that next time.

 

What kept on happening to my account is that when I deleted multiple locations (because we get the data once a month, and some stores might have closed down in the meantime) that I would return to the GMB account the next day, and there would be far more locations in the account then there were the previous day. Not only would there be more listings than I left in there, but some of the deleted listings would come back saying (store ID)- Duplikat , basically copying a previous location and adding -Duplikat behind it, and thereby polluting the business account with unnecessary locations. 

 

Is there any way to combat this? And is this a common occurence?

Frankly said Stefan

my own experience handling bulk feeds is pretty restricted.

But perhaps you read a similar thread in our German forum and try to contact Sönke aka "sun-e"
