listing on google places disapeared

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Overnight we have seemed to have been removed from google places for our primary catergory - Physiotherapist.  we have been ranking 1 or 2 in google places for years, now we dont exist for this category, although our other categories are fine (including osteopaths, physical therapists, pilates)

we do have a duplicate listing at onthat i have removed several times but it keeps coming back - ( however our 2 other locations have also had their search results for physio obliterated) it seems that i have been penalised for something however i dont know why.   any guidance would be appreciated. Perhaps i should hand it over to local seo experts??

@Damian P

few remarks to the first listing:


In fact there are two listings duplicating each other:

the first is "Premier Sports & Spinal Medicine

 and its actually an unverified listing and its only category is osteopath.
The other one is  "Premier Sports & Spinal Medicine" and it owns more  categories like 
Physical Therapist
Pilates Studio
Sports Massage Therapist
Sports Medicine Clinic

I strongly recommend to contact business support to get the unverified duplicate merged with your verified business page.
