Google Business: Can't Add Website URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Business Name: Senoia Pets

Address: Service Business, no store

Telephone Number: 3395269875

Google+ URL:


Whenever I attempt to add my website to my business listing, it immediately comes back with a notification saying:

"Updates from Google
This location has updated information from Google users or other sources. Review these published updates to make sure that they're accurate."
When I look at the 'updated' information, I find that it is trying to remove my website from the listing. The website never appears on the listing if I look at it live, and I'm wondering what's happening, and if there is any way to fix it.

Good Morning Dylan,


Have you added the http://www version of the site to Search Console and verified ownership of this version of the site? If yes, can you perform a manual fetch and render in Search Console - want to make sure there's no issue with Google accessing page.


When adding the site to the listing, are you adding the entire URL (including protocol)?


Was the site indexed when you were attempting to add it to the listing (the http://www version)? (The reason I ask is because I noticed the http://non www version of the site was added to the Facebook listing. Also noticed there's a sitemap indexed and all URLs listed are for the http://non www version.) This sitemap and this sitemap also contain non-www URLs.

The www version is indexed, and was indexed at the time of adding the domain to the Business account.

The no www version redirects to the www version, so no pages are indexed on the non www.
