Duplicate Locations under same business profile - both appear to have the exact same information

Hello,

 

I am helping a client update their Google listings, however they have set up their location twice, so it is a duplicate.

 

They both have the same name, information, etc., and only one marker appears on the Google Map.  But as far as I can tell, the locations are locked because they are duplicate...

 

Business name: Alexander Tree Care - 351 Waratah Ave, Newmarket

 

Please help!

Hi Ronnel, 

 

Yes I would like to close the duplicate.  However, I can't see which account the reviews are attached to. If I close the duplicate, is there a chance I could lose my reviews?

Hi Ronnel,

 

I have closed the duplicate, but it has done nothing. The remaining location is still marked as a duplicate.

@Deanna S

what is the status of both listings in the according dashboard?

Guessing just one is verified - but not sure about.

 

It would be helpful to get screenshots as well to help you further.

Hi,

 

I hope you got your issue sorted out Deanna. I have a similar issue and I am hoping you guys can advise.

 

Duplicate Listing: It looks like someone added keywords to the 1st line of the address. Although the keywords are similar they are not 100% related and the client is rightly wanting it removed.

I have tried claiming ownership and removing the keywords to no avail. In fact, GMB started pulling the incorrect keywords into the results of the main listings as well as the duplicate. This is despite me removing the keywords the duplicate listing in my GMB account.

I have claimed the duplicate listing and then closed the duped listing but still, this duped listing shows in search results ahead of the preferred live listing.

 

As you can imagine this is very frustrating so any help will be much appreciated.

Hello All,

 

I am having the same problem with my business. Before a couple of weeks, my listing was working fine, but suddenly Google start showing one of my listings duplicate. I have different business names, address but still it's showing duplicate. 

 

Please see the below screenshot and provide me the solution. I have very good review and rating on my 3rd business but its reviews and photos are now merged with 2nd business. Whereas earlier, both business was showing separately.

Your help will be appreciated.

 

Many Thanks
