Converting a local business listing to brand page only

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a local listing in Google with the following details:


Urdu Voice Over

 Address: Mubarak Shah St، Abdul Hakīm 58180 (Pakistan)

Google Maps URL:,72.1212323,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s...



The business is actually online only and targets customers mostly out of Pakistan. The listing was created years ago when I didn't know how it could impact international SEO. Now, I'm afraid the position of the business in SERPs is influenced by the fact that it exists as a local one in Google's database.


Secondly, showing off the location is of no practical use to the business. That's why I want to remove the local listing on Google Maps and maintain rest of the data as brand page only. Is that possible?


I have read a couple of threads here about similar issues and tried to contact Google Support as suggested but could not find a way. Please help!


Thank you.
