The incorrect menu is appearing in position 1 for Google search

Hi: If you search "Sweet Auburn BBQ Menu" Google search displays a menu in position #1. The menu is old and outdated. It is also pulling from an unknown source. How do I get this search result removed as we update our menu often.

Hi Ashley,

 

This is a VERY common frustration with restaurants. Right now, for many/most restaurants, Google is attempting to pull menu data from your site, and if it can't find good data, defaults to a 3rd party (Single Platform or Locu still I believe: http://www.singleplatform.com/blog/2014/03/07/google-adds-menus-search-results)

 

IMO I'd rather NO menu show than an incorrect menu. While I don't know your website, what I'd encourage you to do is to make sure your menu is in well-formatted HTML (not a PDF for example), and if possible, make use of Menu schema: https://www.confluentforms.com/2017/01/defining-restaurant-menu-schema.html

 

The other option, if the above doesn't work, is to sign up for Single Platform for a short time period, just enough to update your menu to a more recent version.

 

Best, David
