Another business has my website linked to their search results!

Hi there, 

 

Please help!

 

I help to run a business called 'Talent Makers' in India - we are a talent assessment and development company working with Indian corporates. We are based in Bangalore, India.

 

There is another business of the same name - a school tutoring service based in New Delhi, India. 

 

When I search for my business, i.e. 'Talent Makers' the school tutoring business' address comes up - and MY business' website is linked to it. This is wrong!

 

How do I stop my website being associated with their business? It has led to quite a bit of confusion with my corporate clients. Please help!

If you search for their business in Google Maps you can edit their business to remove your URL and to add the correct URL

 

I think this is the correct URL to goto to make the corrections: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Talent+Makers/@28.4884538,77.0172978,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0...

searching for "Talent Makers near Bangalore" I get your business and its based on this G+ page plus.google.com/100124249806805065676/about

 

Searching instead for  "Talent Makers near New Delhi" I get an result in Gurgaon (not explicitely in New Delhi)

 

@Rosie G

and its based on this G+ page plus.google.com/100958684627886605888/about

Since the latter G+ page is not verified it you can try edit the wrong website of it by clicking this link "Edit details"

 

If there is still a third G+ page with a  New Delhi address and your website:

would you please provide a link to such a search result showing it for help with this third G+ page?

Thank you

I have a similar issue ... am waiting to hear from Google ... have been missing business... people calling but not showing up.... found out that when customers are putting "Feel Good Health" (My business) They are getting directed to "The Health Shelf" (Previous owner of shop at our current location has set up her business in competition from home where red marker is on map.. link below) nearby. I'm waiting on verification from Google Business for our name (Feel Good Health) at our true location. How has she been able to do this and how can I stop it? Thanks Carla
Here is the link https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/The+Health+Shelf/@-28.0530012,153.4304973,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2...

two remarks please:

since your own business seems not yet verified you can't expect it getting shown up for a name search.

The other business as coming up with the search link is based on this G+ page https://plus.google.com/118126578735504830834/about and its a verified G+ page.

 

Please don't blame a verified business page being a fake one unless specifying here the exact details of your own business.

Note: doing a search for "feel good health australia" I get such results.

Thank you for your response... I'm not sure why we come up in Gaven, however Local Search is a directory which we pay to be a part of in the local region.  the feelgoodhealth.net.au is us.  My point is, it is interesting (and I still would like to know how a competitor can use a Propreitory name that isn't theirs)  in a way that allows Google Maps to direct people to their business.. which is called by another name.  Will this resolve when we are verified?  Thanks

I hope so
