I'm setting up a website + Google Businesses but when you search for the ideal business name in 'Google Search AU' another company with a similar name has already claimed it (with map, sub page and Star Ranking, opening hours etc right-hand side bar). 

 

The other company is based in San Franciso, my company is based in Australia (only serves Australians). If I use the same business name when setting up Google Businesses, will people who search for my name from google.com.au see my business profile or does the current company from San Fransico retain the page rights globally even though we are based in different locations? 

 

Thanks

@jacob W I know it's been a few weeks since you posted here - is this still an issue for you or have you been able to resolve the problem?
