Hello everyone/anyone,

I have a business listing called Bedford Gardenin Services,

I have spent a lot of time updating the content etc. to reach the top of my local results but I discovered recently that my listing didn't appear at all on google maps.

When logged in to my + page the bran page says 'We're not showing this page because it's a duplicate of another'

I'm not quite sure what to do. I have similar pages such as 'Bedford Landscaping Services... Bedford Fencing Services' all registered and verified to the same address, could it be to do with that?

Thank you for your help,

Kind regards,

Alex.

Hi Alex,

Yes, that is the problem. It looks like you basically created a bunch of listings based solely off services you offer. If "Bedford Gardening Services" is your legit business name then stick with that and get rid of the other listings.

I have the same problem.  For some reason once I entered the verification number that was mailed out to me (first time ever) I got the same notification.  Me thinks that Google has a bug somewhere that has escaped quality control.....
