Hi, we have 2 main locations for Henley business school in the UK, which I have recently been tranfering ownbership to 1 Google account, but Google has decided that the 'Reading' location is a duplicate, but it has a diffrent address/ postcode,  so don't understand why it's done this? please help....

thanks, Nick

Without the following information we can not assist you:
1. Full business name
2. Current business address - for both locations

Often, this is because there is another listing out there for the "duplicate" - one that you don't own.  We spent a lot of effort trying to further differentiate our listings, before realizing they weren't the two things Google couldn't differentiate. 


Try doing a few searches and see if you can find one.  If there is one, take ownership and close it.

Hi Priya

the fully Business name is 'Henley Business School'

Location 1 that is working is: 


(,-0.8847266,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!... )


Location 2 that has been flagged as a duplicate is:

Henley Business School
University of Reading


It seems to have doine this because I moved the 2nd location to one google account?

thank you,
