I edit our business name, but it never gets fixed in the Google listing (it's okay everywhere else)

Full Business Name: Northland Public Library

Current Business Address: 300 Cumberland Road Pittsburgh, PA 15237-5455

Current Telephone Number: (412) 366-8100

Google Maps URL: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Northland+Public+Library/@40.5710081,-80.0368337,17z/data=!3m1!4b1...
Websites: https://www.northlandlibrary.org

 

We claimed our Google Place / My Business a long time ago and edited the profile.  But when you do a Google search on Northland Library or Northland Public Library, the sidebar listing that shows up in the Google search says "Northland Public Library Central Library."  We haven't figured out how to make that Central Library bit go away.

I know this is a very long existing bug and I'm not sure if there is a way to fix it but I will ask Google and let you know what they say!

So I heard back and unfortunately this is a long-standing bug that there isn't a solution for at the moment until Google fixes the bug.  

 

Sorry :(
